I know this has a huge title, "Hear, See, & Speak No Evil, My Pelicans, My Pleasure", but I love my Pelicans and love being with them down on the waters edge. It always give me so much pleasure to be near them, and I love taking photos of them at close range.

I think my size may be an advantge, as that arn't scared of me, in anyway.....

GREETINGS FROM THE COMMENT BOMB SQUAD!

I AM JUST GOING THROUGH YOUR PORTFOLIO STOPPING AT IMAGES THAT HAVEN'T RECIEVED TOO MANY COMMENTS AND I FOUND THIS WONDERFUL SHOT OF PELICANS. I LOVE THE CRISP BLUE COLOR OF THE WATER THAT ALLOWS THE NEUTRAL TONED PELICANS TO REALLY STAND OUT. PLACING THE SHORE LINE AS LOW AS YOU DID HELPED IN THAT TOO. COMPOSITIONALLY, THIS IS AN EXELLENT USE OF THE RULE OF THREE, PHOTOGRAPHING THREE OF ANY SUBJECT CREATING A MORE DYNAMIC SCENE. THERE IS ALSO SOME HUMOR AS SUGGESTED BY YOUR TITLE AND THE FACT THAT THE PELICANS ARE EACH LOOKING IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS!

WELL DONE HERE!
