Hi John,
I love the perspective and the way you used the pelican in the foreground to frame the second one--unique shot. #1804

Good low-angle shot... many photos are better from abnormal perspective. Did you use telephoto, or just friendly birds? #2762

John, way to get in there! Viewing this picture I feel like a pelican myself. Nice shot. #2763

Thanks for the comments. No I sat for a couple of hours on a sandbar and the pelican became very friendly. 7mm lens digital (angle of view same as 35mm lens if you were using 35mm SLR). I recieved many strange looks from tourists! #2778
