Last morning I took an early morning walk in the park (Pildammsparken, Malmö, Sweden). As usual I almost bailed since I am 99 % night owl and 1 % early bird, but I am SO glad I went there! Such a beautiful morning. Not even the ducks were awake.
Eventhough it was early the sun was already up and shining and the green just gets greener everyday.
The water was pretty and the wind almost non existing which gave some decent reflections.
But … the most lovely thing of all! The thing that really made it worth the effort x 1000 was when I saw this swan couple sleeping on the other side of the pond. They are under the tree in the middle. One still sleeping and the other just getting ready (just before this shot I also accidently pushed a button on my camera so the settings got all wrong. Gah! Think this is pretty ok anyway though).
One of the swans came towards me …
… and finally was just next to where I was standing! Such a beautiful swan.
… and he saw something …
… and he got lucky!
In the background Mrs Swan was waking up …
… and Mr Swan met her halfway.
They started to look the same way (literally).
And they were having a morning kiss in the early sunshine!
Mr and Mrs Swan went for a little swim (didn’t not see that flying duck while shooting, hah!).
Then they got back to cuddling …
SO much cuddling! So sweet! Never seen a couple being this affectionate! And then … Mr Swan got lucky again this early morning.
They ended it all with forming a heart. Coincidence? ( I think not)
I have always loved swans and have seen a lot of them, but I have never seen a couple looking so much in love as these two. It truly was an amazing experience that I will remember for a long time. And as you might have figured out by now …. I did not regret for one moment waking up at 5 am.
