[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Picking up where I left yesterday when I promised to show you the face of ,,El Cabron,, (The Jerk) the famous male brown pelican, making the Ensenada Mercad de Mariscos (Seafood Market of Ensenada) his home and feeding exclusivelly on the disposed carcasses of fish.
He has an impressive figure and healthy colors as you can see and surpasses any one of his fellows in size due to its easy nourishing grounds. Nevertheless not a fat bird incapable of flight or a pet, he has pride and dignity reignin and fighting all other aviaries present.
There are more pics of him comming, just love him so much ...
Nothing special about the technicality of the shot, like I said last time it was harder to get over the pestilential stench surrounding this environment ...

Great shot, it looks unreal.
Well done.

Nice detail, the feather detail on the body and leading edge of the wing is superb.

Very interesting capture and POV Radu. Yes, he really looks great and willing to pose. Absolutely beautiful colours and wonderful sharpness showing a lot of details in his plumage. Also the picture shows how clever they are adapting to the city-life. Well done.
