usually swans are quite aggressive. but this one wasn't - it was so cute!
it didn't growl, it was more like a puff.
it didn't run after me, it followed me like a dog.
it didn't snap me, it was more like kissing.
and half a second later it literally kissed my camera. loads of spit on the lens and some minor scratches on the plastic housing, but it was totally worth it.
thank you dear swan, nice to meet and capture you.

"Deep Throat" is featured full page in the "Pictures Magazin", a german photography magazine (www.pictures-magazin.de).
this is my first big publication - i am very happy and proud.
and this is why i uploaded it again - because of the re-edit for the print and because so many people haven't seen it yet. so here it is. ;)
