|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|During 2014 I had posted a flying Pelican in TN from Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary, India. As I had mentioned in that note, Dusk was about to fall and the birds were returning back to their nests. I was standing on the watch tower and saw the pelican which I had earlier clicked was, returning back. |
Required sturdy hands to take this photo in the absence of tripod and in fading light.

Hi Bala,wonderful in flight capture,the details are absolutely perfect despite its fast mouvement,i like a lot the colorful composition too. Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
It is always difficult to capture a flying bird, at least to me. Exposure looks good and quite well details. But too tight crop; wings are almost touching the frame. It would have been a stunning shot if bird flew inside the frame. Hallows engulfed the bird; have a look edges of the bird; mainly top portion where BG is blueish sky.
Thanks for sharing,
Best regards and have a nice Sunday,

The photo looks a bit unnatural. I think you cropped it to much. It became noisy and the colors, specially in the sky, look unnatural. There's a hallow around the bird. Sharpness is very good.
