[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one mad corporate pelican kickin` its briefcase all over the place as the seafood market plunged down in the harbour of Ensenada in Baja Mexico.
More realistically, I had published already instants of this famous scavenger from the thrashcans of the seafood market in ensenada, he even has a name ,,El Cabron,, (The Jerk)... It is a wonderfull healthy, fantasticly vivid colored brown pelecan, the dominant male of a colony residing nearby.

Looks a lot like someone I once worked with .... I always suspected he suffered from some kind of scavenging syndrome .. Excellent color, sharpness, and, despite the unpromising background, composition.

Good shot, pose and details.
Well done.
TFS.

He had to read too many books by David Coupland :-) I remember this fella from your pictures Radu. This one is perfect. Action and very good quality.

Great action shot, clear, colorful and sharp photo. He does look like he's in a bit of a rage. I wonder what he thought he was doing with that case. Very nice shot, don't think I want to meet him in a dark alley though!

The white's are "Cooked." That's the problem with didgital.
