Species: Mute swan (Cygnus olor) with its cygnet. Story: Swans are such elegant white creatures. Ever wondered how they look when they are born? Made this image during a trip to Skerries in Ireland. It took a while to watch and understand what was moving under that beautiful white wing. Waiting with my camera was worth it when I captured the grey little one as soon as it popped out its face. Must say, a priceless moment!
