Swan Song

"Swan Song"
Trumpeter Swan - Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
The voice of the trumpeter swan is sonorous and vibrant, embodying a series of loud, low-pitched trumpeting sounds, or honks. Witnessing a flock of trumpeters flying overhead, calling to one another, is an experience long remembered.
I made this image with my Nikon D1x camera and 80-400mm VR lens, set at 400mm. Camera settings: Aperture f/9.5, Shutter speed 1/350, Exposure Comp. -1.3, White Balance - Cloudy, Color Space/Adobe RGB98
It can be purchased on my online eGallery, Wildlife Photography by Weldon Lee
