[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At the end of the day in the evening light I had an other look at the swans. And there it was, the moment miss swan started to reorganize the eggs. Nice view in the soft sunlight. Easy to count that there are now eight eggs in the nest. It took her two weeks to deliver. An impressive performance when you know that an egg is 11 centimeters.

During the years they got used to me and my camera as I spend many hours just sitting and looking. They give me the change to shoot my pictures and I take care of the safety and environment around the nest.
