Camera Critters - Swans



Swans on a pond in the Vienna Prater!
Aren't they cute fluffy brown little fuzzies?
And always hiding behind Mama Swan for protection.

AH!!! This reminds me of the child story "The Ugly Duckling"
Those fuzzies do grow up to be beautiful birds. Peace

They're so cute and Mama Swan is beautiful. Watching the babies grow up will be fun.
Great photos!

Hi Maria, such pretty pictures of
the swan family. Stately birds, their offspring, the cygnets so cute and cuddly. It is a pleasure to see them.
Thank you for your visit to my garden.

What could be sweeter than a swan family?!

I missed reading your blog. But it's a difficult time for our family. Everything will be OK. I pray for that.
Your photos make my world better and prettier.

Oh Maria...these pics are just so adorable! I love the first one with the mother giving an eye to her cygnets. So sweet...
I'll definitely check out the Camera Critters spot! Enjoy the weekend!
I really need the break... teaching 11-13 year olds on a hot and humid second floor all week!

Hi Maria, back again to say your little dog is very cute and you put the thought in my head of him chasing flies, made me smile :) I hope you post him into Camera Critters soon.

lovely photos, cygnets are so cute when they're small and fuzzy. I'm just about to post some similar photos myself!

Calm Energy said...

Just stopping by again, Maria...
I wanted to tell you that I also enjoyed your post on the street market! How wonderful that was! Everything looked so inviting...
also, the first photo here, with the mother swan and her cygnets, this could make a beautiful greeting card for any mother!
Thank you for sharing your inspirations! ~ Maria

What a beautiful Swans family. They are sooo cute.

Barbara Martin said...

It's that time of year again that the swan couples bring out their cygnets for the world to see. The trumpeter swans that nest near Lake Ontario have brought their little ones out too.
