Tundra Swans on Ice, Oneida Lake

I headed out this morning in search of a few rare bird species that have been spotted within the area recently - mainly Pine Grosbeaks in Cazenovia and Iceland and Glaucous Gulls in the town of Phoenix. While I struck out on any photographic opportunities with the formerly mentioned species, I came upon a flock of Tundra Swans resting on the ice in Oneida Lake on my way to my destination. I pulled off the road and managed to get a few photographs before they left. In nature photography, I firmly believe that you must be ready to photograph whatever comes your way, even if it isn't the subject you had in mind when you first set out to go photograph.
