That young swan is caughtin a great position,Torgny. I like it a lot. Unusual and beautiful colours - for the sake of photography its nicer than a all-white one - and it stands out well from thedark background

Kjempegott!

Yes, it's last years juvenile. The position is due to a threat from some crows and my finnish reindeer dog. The swan was disturbed while searching for food

Some landscape photo opportunities you have got up there

THE CROW AND THE SWAN


A Crow was filled with envy on seeing the beautiful white plumage of a Swan, and thought it was due to the water in which the Swan constantly bathed and swam. So he left the neighbourhood of the altars, where he got his living by picking up bits of the meat offered in sacrifice, and went and lived among the pools and streams. But though he bathed and washed his feathers many times a day, he didn't make them any whiter, and at last died of hunger into the bargain.

You may change your habits, but not your nature.

Thank you, ellenfl, for viewing and commenting. It was seeking shelter for the night in a little bay nearby
