I pitched up to this little nature reserve in the south of England in the hope of seeing a Kingfisher. While there I had a walk round the lakes early on where there were two swans having an early morning paddle. All of a sudden one of them spooked and made to take to the air. As anyone who has seen this knows it is not easy for swans to take off. They have a long run at it and make a lot of noise. Luckily for me I was in the right position to get the reflection which is the difference to this being an interesting shot or not.
Kit: Canon EOS 1Div EF 500mm f/4 @ 1/1600s ISO 160
