Portrait of a Pelican

Yesterday I found myself at Balyang Sanctuary which is on the banks of the Barwon River in Geelong the second largest city of the State of Victoria, Australia. This Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) was sitting on a nesting box preening itself.

  1. Wonderful portrait, I love the pose, if birds can be said to pose – well very caught! I’m an ex-birder and so certainly biased, but artistically this is a wonderful shot too. Adrian
