Adorable Baby Swans Hitch A Ride On Their Mother's Back During A Swim At A Lake

Professional photographer Jonathan Fletcher came across a brood of adorable baby swans and their mother swimming at the Fradley Junction and Kingfisher Nature Reserve in Staffordshire, England. The baby swans, known as swanlings or cygnets, scrambled on the water to get a hitch on their mother's broad back. Fletcher captured the moment with his camera. Climbing over and riding on their mother's back is not uncommon among baby swans.
