“The Australian Pelican is medium-sized by pelican standards: 160 to 180 cm (5.2 to 5.9 ft) long with a wingspan of 2.3 to 2.6 m (7.5 to 8.5 ft). Weight can range from 4 to 13 kg (8.8 to 29 lb), although most of these pelicans weigh between 4.54 and 7.7 kg (10.0 and 17 lb).
It is predominantly white with black along the primaries of the wings. The pale, pinkish bill is enormous, even by pelican standards, and is the largest bill in the avian world. The record-sized bill was 50 cm (20 in) long.

Pelicans work in groups to drive fish to shallower water, where they stick their sensitive bills in to snatch their prey.” (Wikipedia)

A great post narrative, backed up by a series of images full of natural colours and stunning detail, and wonderfully captured. Great point of view, stunning.
