Trumpeter swans
Photographer: Robert Esbensen
Location: Minnesota
Story: 
I was taking pictures on the shore of the Mississippi River at a spot where the swans frequent. I noticed the full moon rise just before sunset. I timed the shot just as the swan flew in front of the moon making sure the swan was in focus.
