Whooper Swan (Cygnus cygnus). 20.10.2008, Tornio.

 

I live in a place where 500-1000 Whooper Swans rest and fill their stomachs in the autumns. Just about 400 meters to the Torniojoki. Many times swans fly over our house. Today when I was taking some pics from birds in our feeder I heard those trumpeting voices come towards. Five magnificient birds fly just above me. Standing on our porch I took this, almost full frame pic...luckily it didn`t come too near:)
