Alaska Snowshoe Swan

Well, actually a Trumpeter Swan that arrived at its favorite pond a little too early in the year!

Fits the theme very well. Nice head turn and love the raised “snowshoe”. I know many prefer room at the top of images, but perhaps cropping down to eliminate the dark area?

Gary, the raised foot is an excellent “extra”, that brings a grin. I also like the tracks leading in and the long shadow.

Well composed W on W image. The raised snowshoe is a nice touch.
