This is a capture of swans as they feed in Bass Lake on the property of Cone Estate on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Blowing Rock, NC. I had no idea how long the swans would have their heads under water to feed on whatever they eat. To get both swans with their heads above water, it required about 20 shots to get one good picture. My hat's off to wildlife photographers. I can only imagine how much time it takes to get really good shots in the wild!
