In the morning when I arrived at the waterside they all turned the heads the same way. After that they continued cleaning the feathers and sleeping.

If you like to see more swans have a look in my:
Treknature Swan Gallery and swan gallery on Treklens!, each with pictures of the swan family.
They are for sale! If you like a big print, let me know by e-mail.

un grand bravo pour cette rangée de canard
la photo est super jolie bonne réussite, bons détails, jolies couleurs nettes

Hoi Hendrik,
Wat een prachtige photo. Je kunt duidelijk zien dat ze je volledig vertrouwen. Erg mooi dat ze je op deze mannier begroeten. Erg mooie scherpe foto met perfecte kleuren en licht. Ik had alleen de spiegeling van de eend bovenin verwijderd.

I think you must have lined them all up here Heindrik and told them to move their heads like this!!!
What a cool shot! They look so funny standing like this. Lucky you seeing them, TFS

Hello Hendrik!
After so much time you spent with them its possible you're good friends and they pose for you, right? Did you ask them to turn their heads in the opposite direction to see which one would look better? It's a really funny shot. Congratulations,

What a perfect line up, Hendrik!
Look like disciplined soldiers, doing things in unison.
Well captured image with perfect details, colours and light effects.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Hendrik,
Nice photo and composition. TFS.

Haha, again this pretty family - I love the same poses of all.
Hi Hendrik, what a lovely family.
What has been so interesting at the left side?
A phantastic moment, thanks for sharing, I like it very much, bye

Hi Hendrik

What a brilliant pose, I agree with Ram that they look like soldiers all lined up, lovely colour and lighting too, I can't beleive how white Blondy is compared to her siblings.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hoi Hendrik

Hoi Hendrik,
Moet hier eigenlijk wel een beetje om lachen, gezien het feit dat jijze getraind hebt. Echt geweldig deze foto. Ik zie het al helemaal voor me: "links! rechts! opgeleeeeet: ZWEM!" Of gaat dat niet zo Hendrik? :) De foto is echt de moeite waard. TFS.

N.B.1:Inderdaad opvallend veel 'views' en relatief weinig comentaar.
N.B.2:Nog iets gehoord of gezien van de KLM Zwaan?

Valt me tegen Hendrik.
Je had even moeten wachten totdat Ma Swan ook had gaan staan. Grappie.
Een Plaatje is het. Ik heb er een van de andere kant genomen, waarop ze naar het water lopen.
Maar deze is Super sterk! 10 punten.

Soldier swans obeyed your order to stand still for the photo :)

Nice shot.
