[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

In medieval Europe, the pelican was thought to be particularly attentive to her young, to the point of providing her own blood when no other food was available. As a result, the pelican became a symbol of the Passion of Jesus - Wiki.

great pose with the eye showing but the image is a bit dark.

Hello Dan,

I really like this shot, the cropping adds such drama to this fellow. Great detail and sharpness, very well done. Thank you for sharing :)

Well caught! Very good sharpness on the head / eye area.


Hi Dan,
I like so much this uncomon view of the pelican!
Your POV and close approach are very good and effective ones.
I like so much the eye details seen, surrounding by these sea of feathers pointing in all directions.
The framing and composition works pretty well here.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Dan

This has got to go into my themed favourites! Stunning camera work here. Congrats!

Wow Dan, this is a fantastic photo. Not only is your image technically proficient, but it is also a very intimate shot. Your effective/atypical framing draws my eyes towards the little details of the image for a real pleasurable experience. TFS,
