I am adding most of our photographs to our Swan picture gallery. At the moment we have just around 100 pictures of swans, cygnets and scenic locations (with swans) and plan to add many more. The pictures have been taken using a number of low cost digital cameras. At the moment I often take a compact Panasonic DMC-TZ10 camera everywhere I go; it is has a great lens and a 12x optical zoom, allowing for reasonable wildlife photography for birds such as swans which are all reasonably easy to get close to. The photographs of young, and sometimes very young cygnets were only possibly using the optical zoom capacity of my digital cameras, as swans can be very protective of their young.

Cygnets Just Hatched
I have used some of my photographs to create digital paintings using digital auto painting software, the results are interesting and they can be used as wallpaper or for printing. The first page brings up a 780x585 px image and if you click on this image it will open another page with a larger 1600x1200 you can use to print posters or wall hanging prints. In the future I may add larger images to photo printing services to allow people to purchase prints and other goods online. If you like this idea drop me an e-mail to let me know, thanks. More pictures created using digital painting software can be found on the Swan picture gallery.
Video of swans filmed when I was fascinated by watching young cygnets growing up. As I passed them every day going to, and coming back from work, I ended up taking hundreds (possibly thousands) of pictures and short video recorded using my digital camera. We also have a video on young cygnets.
