  14. Lovely swans!!
    We lived in Heidelberg, Germany for three years and of course there are swans everywhere in Germany!! Lovely to look at - but one chased my three year old so she is now 31 and doesn't like swans. Here in Georgia, she never sees them. Still lovely to watch!

    1. Thank you Suzan! They can be quite agressive, especially if they have young ones.
