"Hey, am I looking good after my bath in the lake!!!
Hope you make a good photo of me, so that everybody on TrekNature can see me!
I'm living in a nice Safari-Park near Verona and I'm a large waterbird, a Pelican.
I can grow to a wingspan of three meters and weigh 13 kilograms. From the fossil record, it is known that my pelican-fathers have been around for over 40 million years. Hey I'm realy phantastic, am I ?"

Amazing capture, Wishnu! The sharpness of the feathers is great, and the pose is awesome.

Thanks for sharing!

I like the pose on this pelican, Wishnu, and the details on the front wing and the body are very sharp.The back wing is a little over-exposed, but the composition is great. Well done and TFS. : )

Great shot Sabine,
Excellent detail, sharpness and composition. The colours and Timing is very good. Good POV.
Thanks for posting, have a good day

Cool shot & action Wishnu, Thank You!

Hi Wishnu

Good timing. He looks like he has just had a really good shake after his bath. The water drops are well captured. Nice work. Thanks. :-)
