Swan & Bokeh Delight. by rwhite

Swan & Bokeh Delight.

Swan & bokeh delight....almost sounds like a fancy french dessert!
But seriously, I'm quite pleased with this shot. I got in quite close, so his/her neck would frame part of the shot and the focus would produce nice bokeh from the sunlit leaves in the background.
This particular swan seemed to be so lonely. It didn't mix at all with the other 20+ swans that were swimming around on the river, it just stood all day alone on the grass verge. I wonder what story it has to tell.
Many thanks to everyone who viewed, commented and faved my pictures the last few days. Much, much appreciated.
It is like dessert. Beautiful
