Four little swans

Posted by ursulakatariina (Ed, Sweden) on 10 July 2014 in Animal & Insect.

Saw these four little ones yesterday. Their parents were close by and told me to go away but I just had to get a photo or two of them...


Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

Rising youth. The Swan is a nice looking watch from the very small.

Just a great picture and beautiful little ones! Be careful, the parents can come on!, You know what happens if they get a grip, if you remember anyone in the belly of the big bruises after the attack!:-)))))))Haleja.

Happy Thursday,for both of you!

@Oiva: Thank you!
I'm sorry to say but I don't remember anyone having any close contact with swans except when one bit my finger some years back... The parents of these little ones were very clear about how close I was allowed to go so I stayed far enough.

I was attacked by a swan one time - they can really hurt!!!
These little ones grow so fast. I like how you captured their softness and their reflections

@Ruthiebear: They are big birds so I stay far enough if it seems they are ready attack.
I think they grow too fast... Thank you!
