    Default Black swan (Cygnus atratus)

    Fyshwick Sewage Ponds, ACT, June 2011.
    Canon 7D, 300 mm f2.8 + polarizing filter (I think), hand held. 1/1000 @ f6.3, ISO 800. I remember using the polarizer that morning to cut down the glare from the water's surface, but didn't use it on all the shots I took.
