I was feeding shelled corn to a flock of 11 trumpeter swans (only one in this shot), several dozen mallards, and one lone hooded merganser (not seen in this shot). The action - competition - got pretty intense at times.

This is another shot of birds on the water which is posted more for interesting (I hope) content than for technical quality. The birds were moving in and out of the frame so fast that 'composition' became more an accident than a deliberate act, and maintaining any kind of sharp focus was a joke. I need more practice on moving subjects, obviously.
