2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan | Whooper Swans in Japan

Apr 04 | Evan | No Comments |

Along with Chris Weston, I escorted a small group of wildlife photographers in Japan in search of Japan’s Winter Wildlife. View the 2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan Trip Report to see photos of Japanese Snow Monkeys, Red Crowned Crane, Swan, Steller’s Sea Eagles and whatever else we could find!  If you have come to this post soon after posting, I’ve already posted about the Steller’s Sea Eagles and Cranes will be coming next, for now, enjoy the Whoops Swans (lake) … sorry couldn’t resist!

Of all the animals we photographed in the 2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan, the Whooper Swans were the hardest for me in some ways.  To be honest, mainly it was because I wasn’t as interested in the swans and they weren’t as active as the other animals.


To come away with photos I was happy with, I really had to think about the story I wanted to tell with my photos of the swans in Japan, elegance, beauty and grace of the swans.  Somehow I did manage to come away with some other interesting photos of the swans as well though!
