[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The portret of one of the two young grey swans, born 15th May. For me it is now easy to shoot. I just sit down next to him and he acts like a mnodel, turning the head in all directions. On treklens the portret of the white one, Blondy!

Have a look at the yesterday picture too! Flight training all together.
Flying exercise of Blondy

Believe it or not but I discovered that this picture has over 8700 views! Great to have so many visitors. (Disappointing is that I only got 9 critigues.)


If you like to see more swans have a look in my:
Treknature Swan Gallery and swan gallery on Treklens!, each with over 50 pictures of the swan family.
