[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
A pelican is any of several very large water birds with a distinctive pouch under the beak belonging to the bird family Pelecanidae. Along with the darters, cormorants, gannets, boobies, frigatebirds, and tropicbirds, it makes up the order Pelecaniformes. Like other birds in that group, pelicans have all four toes webbed (they are totipalmate). Modern pelicans are found on all continents except Antarctica. They are birds of inland and coastal waters and are absent from polar regions, the deep ocean, oceanic islands, and inland South America.

amazing sharpness and contrast, TFS Ori

Salut Martin
Quelle belle photo de ce pélican qui fait son beau pour le photographe!
Couleurs, focus, belle profondeur, tout y est.
Bravo et au revoir...JP

Super exposure, so much detail in the white, I love it ! Nice POV, good composition and color. If only you could have captured the complete reflection in the water, that would have made it even nicer than it already is. Well done, TFS

Very crisp and clear capture . I love the way you can see the feet in the clear water . Well sighted and captured .
