Wow, Murray, beautiful !!
the green water, the sharpness of the pelican, the reflection in the water, all is so splendid ! Thanks for sharing and merry christmas to you

Hi Murray,
A wonderful shot of this beautiful pelican. Excellent details and sharpness, nice composition.
Hope you have a very happy Christmas.


Hi Murray again,
Simple yet very effective composition, pleasant to the eyes. Wonderful. Just one tip: if You lower the camera a bit, the bottom crop wouldn't be too closed to the mirror reflection (I hope You understand what I say with my poor English). Otherwise a minimalistic masterpiece.
Best wishes to the new year, László

Hi Murray,

The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the pelican. The picture is clear and precise. The intensity of the light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.
