[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Dalmatian Pelican (Pelecanus crispus) is a massive member of the pelican family. It breeds from southeastern Europe to India and China in swamps and shallow lakes. The nest is a crude heap of vegetation.
This huge bird is the largest of the pelicans and one of the largest living bird species. It measures 160 to 183 cm (5 ft 3 in to 6 ft 0 in) in length, 915 kg (2033 lb) in weight and 290351 cm (9 ft 6 in11 ft 6 in) in wingspan. With a mean weight of around 11.5 kg (25 lb), it is the world's heaviest flying bird species on average although large male bustards and swans can exceed the pelican in maximum weight. It also appears to have one of the largest wingspans of any living bird, rivaling those of the great albatrosses
The Dalmatian Pelican is found in lakes, rivers, deltas and estuaries

Ellerine sağlık Cahit bey, harika bir fotoğraf..selamlar.

Hello Cahit,
Excellent photograph, excellent sharpness, excellent composition, very good background.

Hallo Cahit
This is a great image for many reasons, but what I like the most here is the beautiful sunlight that is part of the scene. Furher to that you captured this Dalmatian Pelican in a great pose with details of its wings, the feathers on its tummy and chest, its eye and the long bill beautifully. The water makes an ideal background to emphasise this bird's prominent features. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

great sharp flight capture, TFS Ori
