I photographed this Mute Swan at a local Nature area. When you get close it is amazing how large Mute swans are. I like the way they kind of keep an eye on you when you are close to them. I was traveling light with my small m43 camera with a 100-300mm lens which is equivalent, because of the 2X crop factor of m43 cameras, to a 200mm – 600mm lens equivalent on a Canon or Nikon full frame camera body. For a 600mm equivalent the Panasonic 100-300mm has a fairly close minimum focusing distance with a small compact lens that is pretty sharp if you get use to adjusting the files.
