Photographs taken in 2005 with a low cost digital camera. I used the zoom lens to take the close up pictures of the newly hatched swans, or more correctly, cygnets. The swan was in a field that normally has a few horses, and the "pond" was simply an area of the undulating field that had flooded over the winter months. I have added 13 pictures of these really cute cygnets with their mum. I hope you enjoy seeing the pictures as much as I did seeing these beautiful creatures and taking pictures of them. Visit the page to see more pictures of the newly hatched cygnets.
