It was slightly hot and humid. I found these birds were just enjoying this pool. They were circling and coming again and again closer to the fountain. Hope you all like it.

There is something "classic" about this image...It almost looks out of time and place...Normally seen in the air of on the seashore, it is unusual to see them here...and so clear and crisp! Fine image and added to my theme.

Hi Nara,what a very nice water effect! Nothing better to show the birds! My best compliments for the idea and the perfect realisation,have a nice day,Luciano

Hi Narayanan
Unusual surrounding ;-) Some people can say that it is not nutural but I think that it is just nature vs human activity. I like composition here and also great depth of view and interesting texture on water surface. Also grewat contrast and good sharpnesss

Hi Ganesh, a marvelous shot of these beautiful pelicans in a pool with very nice composition. Thanks for sharing this fine image.

Hello Ganesh,
Wonderful capture of these Pelicans enjoying the spray from the fountain. The effect is really beautiful and the birds look gorgeous against the dark water. Great sharpness and lovely colours too! Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Interesting photo. I like the lighting. The dark water really works well with the white pelicans. The high speed does wonders for the fountain. Gary

A very original shot :-)
This could so easily have been B+W if it wasn't for those orange beaks which add a splash of colour to the shot.
Excellent quality.
Great composition.
Perfect exposure.

Very well done,

Oh, Narayanan, this is superb, with the monochrome colour and the orange beaks of the birds. I love it, the ripples on the surface of the water, the shimmering droplets of the fountain because of the high speed of the camera, the relaxed manner of the birds. It is a little jewel. thank you!


Hi Ganesh Ji,

A nice capture of these beautiful pelicans. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Ganesh, great composition with fantastic effect of water and lovely birds, very well done, ciao Silvio
