CommentDespite being such a big bird the Australian Pelican is not always easy to capture in the frame. So often the eyes are dark without any glint and balancing the coarser and finer plumage along with the exposure of black and white is always a challenge. A few pelicans were sitting on posts at a nearby jetty waiting for local fishermen to throw away their scraps. As they rested preening and cleaning out their bills, I experimented with a few different angles.
