My second oldest at 36 is named Chris. He was also the first to call me today on my birthday. And since this was posted on my B'Day and since it so such a wonderful image and from a man who has been on TN just about since it's inception....I thought I would pay homage to you...something that just sort of hit me out of the blue. Your images are so truly natural and so truly heartfelt. Not hard to miss those qualities in a photographer...and a man...
I have a friend from OZ....He is now the sheriff of a county here in Washington State. We speak frequently. I think he may be close in on your age...and so all of those connections and with a viable point to give out..or two make that..and because it is my birthday and finally because it is indeed super shot...then you get these two points for what4ever they are worth beyond that I do not know...

Amazing over-head capture of a Pelican, Chris.
The angle of light creates great contrasts on the subject without affecting the clarity of details on its nether wings.
The deep blue sky gives the impression as if you had used a polarizer filter.
Great image, indeed.
Thanks for sharing it.

A splendid shot of this impressive pelican!
I really like the pose here and the superb contrast with the blue sky here - which by the way looks very intense, almost like you've used a polarizer :) Anyway, great work with the exposure, spot-on sharpness and lovely compo.
Bravo and TFS

Great capture of this Pelican in flight. I've always thought they look like Jumbo jets when flying! They're so solid! You've caught this one at a nice moment showing fine details against the blue sky. eautiful light too.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla
