Along the lower Seeve, the area Junkernfeld runs through the nature reserve. In summer the checkerboard flowers bloom here, but at the end of winter many parts of it are still flooded lake-like. Many waterfowl can be found there, like these two swans I watched in the warm light of the setting sun.
I love the view of the back bird looking critically over at me, while the other swan spreads its wings elegantly. I love the background light that shines through the wing feathers and makes them shine like fine silk.
