CommentI managed to get up early to photograph birds at sunrise and this was a defining moment on how beautiful birds are in the morning sunrise. I think I took quite a few photos, but this was one of my favourites. Capturing the Pelican starting to rise out of the water and heading towards the rising sun. The calm expression was a mismatch for the feet and wings working fast to get to a take of point.
