Swans and ducks in the canal - IMG_6626a

I name them (just for my self and all those who follow this on flickr) in accordance wih their tags - Vera the mom is tagged Blue-V10, her two cygnets are Blue-AYK and Blue-AYM so japanese names are in order: Ayka and Aymi. Although I suspect that the larger of the two is a male ;-)

The tagging is done by the Copenhagen University - Zoological Museum.

 

The white swan, Cygnus Olor / mute swan, is a national bird of Denmark, it's the largest bird in Denmark, it is in the number of five in formation, the symbol of the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland) - on top of that, its also the symbol of organic food in Denmark, "The Swan Mark!"
