I followed in my backyard a swan family from building their nest until now. There were born six young swans. Been a long time there were 4 survivors but since a few weeks there are only three. Today, tree moths later they passed again my backyard. It’s so nice that they recognize my voice. (lol, I have conversed much with them☺) I went inside my house and grabbed my camera to take a picture, and here they are. The whole family☺

  • Dank je Johan, het was zo leuk… ik had ze al een poosje niet meer gezien en toen ik aan de kant ging zitten bleven ze een hele tijd voor mij heen en weer zwemmen alsof ze een show weggaven☺ Fijn weekend Johan!

    It flipping is dangerous….I broke my hip two years ago taking pics of the swans….remember? Lol…lol. That taught me to look where I’m going. ;-)

  • Yes, I remember you broke your hip… but I not remember it’s was taking a picture of swans. Lyn, I fell into a ravine in the mountains while shooting scenery, ’m transported to hospital by helicopter.
    Lol, final conclusion photography is a dangerous hobby☺
