Hi Johan,

Better than any punk presentation I have ever seen! This is pelican is completely new to me!! A beautiful portrait of a beautiful bird!

Impressive shot to capture the wild Pelican.

Personally, I feel that the color of Pelican beak is not match its leather as a whole. I recommend him to hire an image designer to change it. LOL

Cheers, Jeff

I can't decide if this is beautiful, or the ugliest bird I've ever seen. Either way, it's a well done shot, Johan. Very colorful!
