These two Whooper swans were out near Myvatn (Iceland), with the wind blowing them nearly sideways in the semi darkness of the midnight sun. I can't say as I've ever seen swans in the wild much before that, and it was wonderful.
Did you know swans mate for life? I didn't get the analogy about the ugly duckling story until I was grown up... because I suppose I never thought the fuzzy grey cygnets were ugly either. I guess beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
