The six ugly ducklings are escorted to the sea for the first swim in their life
These cygnets were hatched several kilometers from the sea and were obliged to wander through the city to reach the water. The trip took many hours. People from different neighborhoods protected them for traffic during their long migration.

Looking out my kitchen window in Rønne, Bornholm, Denmanrk I suddenly saw this thing happening. I grabbed my camera, and fortunately the ducklings was not walking very quickly. I guess they already were tired at this time. I have later heard from people in the neighbourhood, that the hole swan family finally reached the sea an hour I after shot my picture.
