Nuptial dance

Swans nuptial ritual on Rhine River, Germany
I had the rare chance to see these majestic swans in their mating ritual on the Rhine River in Breisach, Germany at springtime. It was almost like a ceremony in the swan world.

First I thought they were fighting – but they were not 🙂

The weather was great and the light was perfect, so I really took a lot of pictures.

This is a female swan surrounded by the stars created on the water – yes, I know how to photograph stars ( no Photoshop filters used to create them).  She was exactly like in a fairy-tale wedding ceremony 🙂
