Now we can only to hope best...

Swan has built a nest and apparently donned and is now trying to bake chicks. The record-breaking Cold May is not the best aid for hatching success.

Jolie prise. La chaleur est surtout le meilleur moyen pour l'éclosion. )

A nicely layered composition with great highlights in the tall grasses! I think the swans will be just fine as long as they are protected against predators.

@Steven: Right now, especially the night, there are snowstorms, and in the evening rain or snow often falls.

Shaun from Thorton, United States

This is a very nice image of the swans with their young.

@Shaun: Thank you. Those little birds swan beside the eider. They also have problems with cold weather.

I wish them well with hatching their chicks. At least, there is sun today.

MAU from Els Poblets, Spain

Your photo called my attention when browsing the thumbnails, specially the golden tall grass. Great framing.

11 May 2017 5:57pm

@MAU: A wreck, that golden gleam is the last summer rush that will soon crash when you start winding up. Right now it's a swan for a good shelter.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Ah yes.....nothing better than a brace of baked chickens :-)

11 May 2017 7:24pm

@Curly: It is another of the birds that I know with certainty without birdwatch help.
