[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pelecanus crispus. A colonial bird. Lives in fresh brackish lakes, marshes and shallow coastal waters. Here, in lake Kerkini's western shore. The lake was formed in 1932, when a dam was built on Strymon river. It is the wildlife-richest habitat in Greece and one of the ten water-reserves protected by Ramsar Treaty.

Hi Theologos, picture is nice, but this is not White, but Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus). You can see white pelicans among my pictures and shall see the difference. Apart from this, Kerkini is a very beautiful place, I go there every
month :).

Dear Theologos,

I like the picture. I always tried to see Pelecans when bicycling in Northern Greece. The sharpness of the pic is good, the backround in the off, the yellow tinge gives it atmosphere. But I find the picture wanting: the composition. I tried to make a proposition in a workshop version. See whether you like the result.

My best regards,

Hi Theologos,
A beautiful capture of this group of different pelicans over the lake. But the composition by Mr. Dietrich looked much betters. Anyway thanks a lot for sharing.
