Wings of Desire by The Green Album Via Flickr: I’d forgotten about this image, taken last summer at Portishead. The Swans were so friendly I was able to get really close. While I was waiting for a shot, one of the swans showed off its feathers and held it like this for a minute or so.
I’ve played around with the contrast to highlight the structure of the wing and feathers.
