Bird Competition: #30 Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) and #31 Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula)

From Birds 2013

A mute swan (Cygnus olor) and a common goldeneye (Bucephala clangula) meet, Helsinki, Finland. Nikon D90, AF-S DX VR Nikkor 55-300mm 4.5-5.6G ED, ISO200, 1/800 s, f/5.6.

Southern Helsinki has some areas where the sea is not frozen even in February and they offer an easy and quick way spot birds. Fifteen minutes in a bus, fifteen minutes shooting and back by the bus again. This time I spotted common mergansers, common goldeneyes, a pair of mute swans accompanied by a young whooper swan and of course, in a Finnish Winter, great and blue tits.
