A bird for today. Can someone please identify this for me. Is it an immature Pelican. I loved the water drops from its beak making circles in the water.
Have a great dayGrinGrinGrin

Colleen I would go for Either the White or Pink Backed Pelican, but its very hard to tell as it is so immature, pity you cant see the chest area it should have a yellow marking, Well seen and well taken too...John

That's what I look like first thing in the morning and it doesn't improve much during the day................. Well spotted, this a lovely image, I really like it!

I think my camera may have recovered from it's hangover yesterday; hence the reason it took me out photographing, it needed some fresh air after the dinner party on Saturday night............... I will reprimand the camera and insist that it doesn't do it again.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinTongue

the water drops from the beak make it with the ripples caused by it

A beautiful capture from a rather close point of view. The detail is quite superb, whilst at the same time you have retained the natural colour so very well

Super shot Colleen - he looks very deep in thought - the water drops are a brilliant addition to give this image the wow factor.
