CommentMy camera necessitates me being quite close to my subject.I was sitting in my car near a jetty when this pelican came in to the shore to tidy up its plumage. Over the next 30 minutes or so I managed photos of all kinds of poses but I like this one best because of the water droplets and the eye contact. I was not happy with a closer crop.
