Ever since seeing images from Hokkaido, I have hoped to see wild Whooper swans on ice....and finally got a chance this spring during our visit to the Varanger Peninsula, northern Norway.

Composite image merged from 2 frames.

Nikon Z8 & Nikkor Z 600mm PF.

Thanks for the visit, have a great day.

Larger view.

A very lovely scene and so nice to have fulfilled your dream as well. I like the high key pureness of this composite.
