Swans nuptial ritual on Rhine River, Germany

I had the rare chance to see these majestic swans in their mating ritual on the Rhine River (Breisach, Germany). It was almost like a ceremony in the swan world.

I went to the river several times in the morning to watch and photograph them. This majestic birds were just amazing – almost incredible! So graceful, yet so aggressive…

First I thought they were fighting – but they were not 🙂

The weather was great and the light was perfect, so I really took a lot of pictures. I also liked to see their beautiful curves.

This is a female swan surrounded by the stars created on the water. – Yes, I know how to photograph stars and I like it! – No Photoshop filters used to create them.  She was exactly like in a fairy-tale wedding ceremony 🙂
