Farmer Raphael finds a calf in the morning that was born out in the field, at about 1,500 metres altitude, then carries it down the mountainside, slung around his shoulders. Mother and one of her girlfriends follow them down and Raphael watches as the wobbly little guy finds the milk and gets his first good drink. Off to a good start!

Photos by Peter Brodbeck (©2010 P Brodbeck): Geneva police come to the rescue of a swan trapped by a line from a boat in Geneva's harbour. Other swans attacked the trapped bird and began to bite, but were held at bay until police could save the swan. It was their second swan rescue of the day!
Early October is the perfect time to buy wild grasses because you can see what they look like at their best, with a wide range of colours, textures, shapes. This is a collection of images from an afternoon at Schilliger Garden Centre in Gland, canton Vaud, with a couple shots of grasses growing in my garden in the Alps, and mixed with dried oregano in a vase - lovely all winter!
