This Brown Pelican (Pelecanus Occidentalis) has found what appears to be a very uncomfortable place to sit in Galveston, Texas, USA.

Hi Ronnie, welcome from Andi at the Critique Club and catching up on some old critique requests ;)

When I first opened this pic I did have that 'WOW' moment and was a little confused to see the score/position and have no idea why it didn't score 6+ even in a FS.

A great spot and love the composition, it must have been uncomfortable for him. The image is nice and sharp with good detail everywhere except for his neck which looks a little over exposed on my monitor. Is that a real Texan sky or did you adjust it somewhat? either way it does look a little false so me, too even and blue.

A very picky thought but is the pole just half a degree of vertical? I really like the shot and leaving still confused with the score.
