After my previous swan family shot was snubbed by Flickr Explore, I was glad to see that this one, shot with the same subject in a slightly different setting a few minutes later (as they got closer to the shore), did make the cut. My 18th so far to get that distinction. It was also the admin's pick of the day in the Flickr group Winged Waterwonders.
