Five newborn black swans foraged with their parents in the pond of Beijing's Old Summer Palace on Monday. The fluffy, adorable chicks followed their parents closely, creating a beautiful family portrait for photographers to take.

The black swan is a large waterbird. The immature chicks have grayish-brown plumage which turns black at the age of one.
