I was driving on my bike on a path at the a small lake near my home - I saw a guy with a 40D and a 28-70 f/2.8 and thought.. Hmm.. Then I saw he was snapping loose at the swan's nest (which had been there for a while). . Guess what! The eggs cracked!

Please note that it is taken at 22:30 in the evening so flash has been used - but I think the motive itself makes it all worth viewing.

Why don't we! Oh, perfect silvery downy babies! You know, these are the best! I knew you would have your camera out, and be watchful..

Magical things, beautiful pictures. Thanks!
I hope you can keep tabs on the little web(foot)masters, showing us their growings-up.

We only have peacocks and peahens in this Coconut Grove neighborhood.
Last week I saw a peahen herding her five chicks. Downy brown babes, very cute.

Oh yes, in the right conditions the thing will be able to compete with compacts - it's 5 megapixel! It does however suffer in low light because of the tiny little sensor that is no wider than the diameter of a little hairpin. But you do even get control of ISO and many other manual settings! And it's Carl Zeiss optics! It also has the best (stereo!) sound output I've ever heard from a phone. It's not very durable though!

Thank you for all your comments by the way! I'll be sure to post some more pictures as they grow!

Hi there again, thought I'd tell you: The local newspaper pressed my photos of the swans! Anyway, they're doing great --- I'll take the camera down to the lake tomorrow and see if I can catch them when they're out swimming!

gooody!! I am not surprized about the photos getting recognition...they are gorgeous...and not just because I like Swans...they have everything...they a clear, they are composed well..they have human interest, and a built in "I wonder what they look like now" factor..future feel.

I can't wait to see the next set.
