    The first - along with the caption (!) - makes me smile. That one is really funny and well taken, too! Good moment. My son says the flaps look like 100 % down ;)...

    The portraits are really good, too.
    The colourful beak is a thing that only occurs during the mating season?

    Fantastic captures.

    The last one really shows those colors nicely.

    I am not a huge bird lover but the first one is just way too funny not to comment on. I actually think its a wonderful photo. Great job!!!!!

    loving your work there: particularly no.3
    what a lovely subject

    but i can't shake the feeling that the pelican is taking off... not landing (no.1)
    just embracing my cynical side...

    Nice, love the detail. For some reason the first shot makes me wonder if the Pelican was unsure how the landing was going to go :)
