Mute Swans

This is a photograph of this year’s newest family of cygnets at Horn Pond in Woburn, MA, taken in late June. What appealed to me was the vigilance of the adult swan together with the gentleness of the cygnets. I limited my distance to them to about 25 yards so as to not pressure them. I used a Canon 7D and 300 mm F2.8 L IS mounted on a Really Right Stuff TVC-33 with a BH-55 ballhead. My camera settings were 1/1000 sec, f/5.6, and ISO 500.
