We had payed a visit to Ulua Lagoon 4 for a swim and tanning. I has seen those black swans on our way there. I hoped they would still be there when we left. And they were. I sould see 4 of them but photograping was hard as we were on teh main road and could not stop. Just moving slowly forward. Well, I got these shots so I´m happy. 

When I was young they had a pair of swans in a country museum .  One black and one white. They formed a heart with their heads for a moment. So beautiful and my camera misbehaved ,  it was long before digital era. I only got half the shot.   :(

  4. Great birds, sometimes they can be found in the wild in Europe, escaped from zoos or parks.
