Tundra Swans in Whiteout, Oneida Lake

I awoke yesterday morning to about 4 inches of snow on the ground with some additional snow still falling. Realizing that a group of Tundra Swans on Oneida Lake would most likely still be in the same general area, I made a trip down to the lake to try and photograph them in the near whiteout conditions. It was difficult with snow blowing into my car and onto the front element of my lens, but with a bit of care and perserverance I managed to get this and several other photographs.
