Description

We had an extremely nice hotel in Ohrid, right on the waterfront with a balcony looking out over the lake. Late in the afternoon a family of Mute Swan came by, two adults with 5 fuzzy gray cygnets. Unfortunately my shot of the babies didn't turn out, but I got this one of the adult.

Description from Wikipedia

The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan, and thus a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Europe and Asia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa.
