Swans in a Nuptial Dance at springtime
I had the rare chance to see these majestic swans in their mating ritual on the Rhine River (Breisach, Germany). It was almost like a ceremony in the swan world.
I went to the river several times in the morning to watch and photograph them. – They were just amazing – almost incredible! So graceful, yet so aggressive…
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. I also liked to see their beautiful curves.
This is a female swan surrounded by the stars created on the water. – Yes, I know how to photograph stars and I like it! – No Photoshop filters used to create them. She was exactly like in a fairy-tale wedding ceremony 🙂
… And here is a very determined male coming to meet the ladies:
Have you ever seen a swan walking on the water?
I’ve never watched a swan nuptial dance before… have you? How lucky I was to be there at the right time 🙂
