Scuola di volo.

Fortunati i giovani cigni canori nati in Finlandia durante l’estate:  ad inizio ottobre possono ancora esercitarsi al volo coi loro genitori,  prima della migrazione verso sud e hanno un bel po’ di tempo.  Solitamente i cigni sono gli ultimi ad abbandonare le terre del nord a novembre – tutti gli altri uccelli acquatici sono gia’ partiti.

Eccoli all’atterraggio.  Sono graziosi sia in volo che a terra,  nella luce  crepuscolare del pomeriggio ottobrino.

Learning to fly.

Young Whooper Swans born in Finland during summer are quite lucky:  they can still learn how to fly with their parents.  At the beginning of October they have still time before migrating southbound.   Swans are the last to go in November – all other water birds have started much earlier.

Here they are after landing:  beautiful always,  in the air as on ground,  in the October twilight.

  1. Meraviglia! Da piccola era uno spettacolo vedere radunarsi le rondini proprio nel cielo sulla vegetazione vicino a casa mia, voli su voli prima di partire per la migrazione ad Ottobre: ora sono scomparse da decenni, mi mancano! come le lucciole in giardino, scie danzanti di luce verdazzurra, la magia delle serate estive in città

  3. Swans are so elegant! Great you had your camera ready when they flew overhead. You caught some nice angles – great job! Now almost all the birds have gone – it must be quiet out there:) Many thanks for capturing and sharing with All Seasons, and have great November week, Jesh
