The story:

I first couldn't find the swans. Then I saw them far away and when I came closer the female was missing. The male shouted but no answer.
After a while the group went back to the former nest place. An d then it happened. The male saw an other swan and pumped up his wings ready for the battle. The same did the other swan. When they came closer they recognized each other.
As you see on the picture it is really a touching moment. They touched each other with the breast and beak for a while. Isnít it great to be there and see this happening?
