Terrific action on take off there Elaine, one of my favorites I always try for if I visit the Wetland Centre.

I took a about 6 shots here, from water to air but this was the best one of the feet. They really crease me up, so comical looking. So many swans at the estuary at Musselburgh, you're always guaranteed to get something.

Glad you liked it and good luck with your shots too.

Yes it does look awkward the way they take off but there is a lot of energy required to lift that body out of the water
