Both images are special, Torgny.

The 2nd image is more pure (with a clearer background) - while the first photo has such a lovely contrasting colour background.

I particularly like the colour of this swan, I don't think I've seen one like it in real life. Thanks for sharing!

Paul,

It's a "cygnet", born this year. It has to make it on it's own by now. Probably it's a female, they have smaller knobs on the becks. I'll try to find a picture of a grown up female

They are monogamous by the way, till death do them apart

Torgny

lat. Cygnus olor
