Another view of the pelican photographed in the lake in Shepparton.

It was very co-operative, and seemed quite relaxed receiving the scrutiny.

These pelican pics of yours are really good Peter.
I can't get over their big funny looking black eyes.
Huge pupils like that are normally a feature of nocturnal creatures,(and nightclubbers;)
This is a really striking image...larger than life...but smaller.

I think pelicans are cute but a little strange looking birds?or should I say funny like Steve?
Good shot Peter! Drops of water also seem beautiful.

Very good, love the head-on POV.
Wonderful detail and BG. TFS

I really like this photo. Interesting object.
Perfect composition and really nice color. Regards.

Exquisite! I really like the details of the water droplet on the head, the one on the beak, the texture of the water and the beak compared to the feathers. Very good DOF and composition. Bravo!

Is this guy from KKK ?
