Photographer's Note

Photo taken during a bicycle trip near my town.
This view is impressive.
"Wydymacz" nature reserve.

I showed father yesterday, today mother looks after eggs.
It's nice to see how offspring are born.

Being with nature during COVID-19 is the best relax.
The mute swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan and a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Eurosiberia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is an introduced species in North America – home to the largest populations outside of its native range – with additional smaller introductions in Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Measuring 125 to 170 cm (49 to 67 in) in length, this large swan is wholly white in plumage with an orange beak bordered with black. It is recognisable by its pronounced knob atop the beak, which is larger in males. (wiki)
