[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

After taking a bath the little Swans are going back to the nest. If you take a look to the right you can see a little Swan that is still in the nest and less than one day old.

There are two more pictures in the workshop.



Nachdem die jungen Schwäne ihr erstes Bad genommen hatten, begaben sie sich zurück zu ihrem Nest. Wenn ihr einen Blick nach rechts macht, seht ihr einen jungen Schwan, der noch im Nest sitzt und weniger als ein Tag alt ist.

Zwei weitere Bilder findet man im Workshop.

Lieber Helmut,
Die ganze Serie ist so rührend..diese zwei haben ja eine gewaltigen Nachwuchs, haben gut gearbeitet:-). Du hast das ausgewogenste Bild ausgewählt, wo beide Schwäne in fast paralleler Haltung gezeigt wird und die kleinen sind ja so reizend.
Einen schönen Sonntag wünscht Dir
