Another from my earlier pelican series ... couldn't resist - you know how I love pelicans!

Best viewed large ... suffers a bit under the compression.

All feedback (+/-) gratefully received.

Thank you for looking!

Compression hasn't hurt it much. It looks very sharp and clear. I can even see the little hook at the end of the beak. Almost like a small parrot beak at the end of the pelican beak. Looks great.

Hi Susie ...Thnx for your encouraging comments on my pic The Dead Pool. Your so kind Smile I agree as it happens that the border and text spoilt it but after a long day working my threshold for concetration was going cyrillic LOL. It's 4.18am here in the UK and I'm still working Smile

BTW...love this image of the perched birds. Great angle and bold colours well seen. Hope they don't have bird flu ! ROTFL. I only said that for a lark ! Don't get in a flap ! I'm only kidding it's beautifully shot. - click -
