When the Whooper swans returns to the north spring is here again. I captured this image when about 30 swans flew over our house. They are heading towards the northern parts of Sweden to roost. Their trumpeting signals that spring has arrived once again.

All comments are most welcome. I thank you in advance for taking the time. Always greatly appreciated!

Susanne, this is such a good action capture of them, I would love to see that many fly over. I have only seen a few here and there at different times. Tigs♥ =^..^=

A nice capture of the swans Susanne. I like the back lighting on the wings. Good composition of the photo.

We say the one with the map is the second one in line, the leader needing to watch the "road" ahead while the one behind navigates. Much the same way my wife and I navigate through large cities. :D Very nice image of these swans, Susanne. I'd guess that these two, because of the way they are flying, are likely a mated pair. Good luck in the contest.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
