[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Since none of these birds eat each other they don't mind sharing a rock. It's fairly common to see pelicans and seagulls together but the egret is a great deal rarer in this area.

Hi Tom,
A great meeting here!
Any summit, perhaps?
I like so much the scene catched here, with all that birds into the same frame and with good pose and position each of them. Good shot.
Very good light and exposition.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Tom. A great shot that includes the trio of pelican, gulls, and snowy egret. You are right that the egret is not usually found on the shore with the other two, so that makes for an interesting capture. The details on the pelican are very sharp, and the exposure is spot-on on the egret.

Hello Tom,
How on earth do you manage to collect so many birds in one shot without producing a collage??
Amazing capture, very sharp details of all the birds in beautiful light and great colours. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Tom

Great groups shot - really good colours also


Wow, this must be bird photographer's paradise! On the other hand, the "sour grapes" reaction to this photo would be "Too many birds spoil the shot". Seriously, this is a well exposed and focussed image of a difficult group with lots of blacks and whites. Well done, Tom.

This is an amazing lens-collage! Wonderful to see five birds, of three types together. I am amazed at the grayness of the gulls. What kind are they?
I watched for a long time today how two gulls - one herring and one blackback - were hanging around a dozen eider ducks that were busy diving and hunting. Tfs, Hay

Hello Tom , absolutely incredible photo , TFS.

Hi Tom,
An excellent capture. Quite a menagerie, and the pelican appears to be posing for the camera.
