Well done. The whites in the last shot of the first bunch is outstanding. I have also tried everything with the tundra swans against a snow ice background and the only thing worse is doing it in a snowstorm. When the sun is bright like your shots I shoot manual with the meter zero'd and usually end up with the histogram to the right then adjust in LR. Most of my shots are overcast against light gray/white background. The shots always look better against a darker background but my keeper rate because of AF is very low.
Our first tundra swans arrived on March 22nd and we have over 200 in front of the house now. We are having a late breakup and they have been through several blizzards since there arrival. Just posted a shot of a banded one I took a few days ago.
