Beak-a-boo! This mother swan can’t stop diving under the and hiding from her baby.

The adult swan can be seen turning upside down in the water, while the baby tries to figure out where they’ve gone.

Having not yet mastered the skill, the baby just stays where it is in bewilderment.

These photographs were taken by Christopher Schlaf, on a small lake on his property in Michigan, USA.

Christopher said: “I was watching both of the adult swans dive for food and the baby was cruising around them as they did this but so many times it would be one adult diving at a time.

“My hope was to get both adults diving at the same time and the baby cruise in between and it did actually happen a couple of times.”
