[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Yesterday I went for a walk along the river Aar at a place where we have the possibility to see this Pelican-pond, an external add to our zoo just next to the river. As you can see on the picture the pond is still partly frozen. Interesting too to see that wild birds like to pose there too, like the two Grey Herons in the back of the picture.

Bonjour Anne,
A fine capture of wild and park birds.
Both the two Grey Herons and the group of Dalmatian Pelicans are seen with top clarity and natural colours. The composition against the dark water is delightful.
Merci et pensées aimables,

Bonjour Anne

Une jolie photo environnementale pour ces
pélicans et hérons, tu as choisis un excellent
POV pour les présenter, pour la partie haut
de la photo j'aurais cadré un peu plus sérré
juste pour enlever le pont derrière, ainsi la
photo aurait été encore plus naturelle, TFS

Hello Anne,
I must say the way the birds are attractively composed in this shot it looks like you asked them to pose in this manner. The entire frame is filled with beautiful birds and shown in fine detail. Colors are certainly true and natural and the exposure couldn't be any better. Super work!!
