Hello Robert,
Your Australian Pelican has been captured quite nicely in this wonderful inflight image. Lovely black and white plumage and excellent eye contact. Focus is sharp, giving us a great look at its unique body features. I believe I would have removed the boat for aesthetic reasons only. Great work!!
