Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


The Black swan (Cygnus atratus) is native to Australia but popular in zoological gardens all around the world. I spotted this one swimming around with ~20 Mute swans outside Amsterdam, it must have escaped from somewhere.

  8. It’s not often I see black swans, everyone seems to prefer the white ones. But they are quite beautiful! I never realised they had red beaks – how striking it is with the black feathers!! ๐Ÿ™‚
