He's a beautiful creature -- but I LOVE the way you've captured the water here. It looks like liquid velvet!
Aussie: Thank you Martie
I agree, water capture is great. Love the bird, pelican, right? Nice image.
Aussie: Yes it's a pelican, I love taking photos of them.

Great reflection, the pelican is very relaxed, the composition is spot on, have a good weekend.
Aussie: Ik nu begrijpen hoe hard het is voor jou. Ik slechts hebben een naar vertalen.
Dank u wel mijn vriendin.
That water looks so smooth, Aussie.
Aussie: He was swimming up a small inlet leading inland at the change of tide. It was a very warm sunny day and I think this accounted for the slight movement and reflections on the water. So just luck really.

The colours are stunning
Aussie: Thank you Brian. Look forward to Thailand images.
I wonder how much fish he can get into this Aussie?
Aussie: Lots and lots and I bet he never lets any get away.
Perfectly done Aussie
Aussie: Thank you Bill
I love the water. It looks like molten metal.
Aussie: There was a fairly dirty orange shed on the bank and I think it was reflecting in the water.
Really great natural history shot Aussie, this would certainly grace the pages of any book on the subject.
Aussie: Thanks Brian
Dang! I wish we had a few of these round here, all we see are some scrawny starlings or house sparrows. These guys look like a load of fun. smile
Aussie: Thank you Alexandra. He was cruising down a creek, no nice weeds or wildflowers though.

This is a real beauty of a picture. The bird is so clear and sharp and the water looks so inviting.
Aussie: Thank you Ellie, it was a very warm day. Ignore the odd email that you received, wrong spot.

LOL! A great bird and a great composition; I do like the ripples on the water and the colours they have picked up.
Aussie: Thank you kindly Alan. Wish i was arriving at Vancouver for a holiday right now as it may be a bit cooler than here.
Simply beautiful Aussie !!!!!
Aussie: Thank you Jimmy

That's life - just cruising by most of the time. Excellent.
Aussie: Thanks Louis, I think your right or we are wishing the time away waiting for days off.
