[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These three Pelicaneers were found in Kokrebellur, near Mysore. Alert and ready to defend an attack from ANY direction.

Well these are Spot-billed pelicans roosting. Were in the process of building their nests. Could not get a shot of them getting the twigs. Hope this is good enough. You will see a nest SOON on this tree. Hopefully.

Seeing large birds like these on small tree top branches is always entertaining. It hardly seems possible. It is a great capture. I like that the three are all looking in different directions. Sharpness, exposure and color all look very good to me.

Hi Kiran.
I like your amazing "short flight of stairs", created by impressive birds. Excellent details and sharpness, wonderful rich colours and nice composition and cropping. My best wishes and TFS. Well done.
