I took this picture at the Natural History Museum. There are plenty of swans around here, in every pond or river you can see them. I usually don't notice them, but these ones, which have been stuffed by a taxidermist a long time ago, I found them fascinating, as I often do with stuffed animals on display in museums. Maybe because this made up scene of a swan family by a swamp or a lake, with the plants and the cygnets has a certain atmosphere. In a way, it feels more real than the reality of the swans that I can see nearby. Whatever the reason, I love this display.
