|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Pelicans are a genus of large water birds that makes up the family Pelecanidae. They are characterised by a long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey and draining water from the scooped up contents before swallowing. They have predominantly pale plumage, the exceptions being the brown and Peruvian pelicans. The bills, pouches and bare facial skin of all species become brightly coloured before the breeding season. The eight living pelican species have a patchy global distribution, ranging latitudinally from the tropics to the temperate zone, though they are absent from interior South America as well as from polar regions and the open ocean.|

What an eye catching image of this rather plump looking pelican. It's ruffled head feathers remind me of someone who went to sleep for the night with wet hair and woke up in the morning with bed head:) Wonderful detail and just the right white balance resulting in true and natural colors. Such a pretty orangish colored bill and excellent eye contact. Including the feet would have been a real bonus, but still a great shot. Well done!!
