Last Thing a Fish Sees

Uploaded: January 22, 2005


Taken in September 04 on Mykonos, from inside the pelican's mouth with a 10.5 mm fisheye lens. This pelican got fed up with me as I was shooting with the fisheye very close to his eye. Next thing I knew, I found my entire head - and camera - inside his beak. I managed to fire off 4 shots before backing away - this was the best.
