Obviously this swan was hoping that something delicious might fall into the water near him. He saw us standing at the water from a long distance and then approached us in turbo speed. We had nothing with us, and after a while he very slowly and with very much dignity swam off.
It is fascinating to leave the noisy city and to explore the countryside.

On the countryside you only hear the birds, and the wind in the willows.
