A portret of Blondy the young white mute swan taken on June 23 when she was 5 weeks.
It was a sad day. They moved back to an old nest at the other side of a street. When I came I saw only one youngster and thougth the couple lost the other two also and she was the only survivor of the seven.

They realy looked sad with the heads hanging down.
Two days later they found the other two back.

It is nice to be able to compare the pictures now and see the devellopments. Have a look:
Blondy? dropped out of the nest, Blondy 4 months
this one from November 6. It is the same young swan. And this one too!

Looking left, the latest on treklens!

If you like to see more swans have a look in my:
Treknature Swan Gallerywith 79 pictures and swan gallery on Treklens with 57 pictures!, of the swan family.

Believe it or not but I discovered that this picture has over 8700 views! Great to have so many visitors. (Disappointing is that I only got 9 critigues.)
