Outstanding shot, Vassilis. I love the composition of this one.

Thank you Mike & Robert. I believe that in wildlife photography -some photographic skills apart and the subject of course- close distance is No1, light is No2 and equipment comes last. In this case the bird was so busy eating these seeds that I was able to approach close to the minimum focusing distance of my lens (2.8m !)

That Pelican has a meal, not a snack:lol:
Awesome capture Vassilis, congratulations.

Thank you Paul ! That fish was big enough for me, but the fisherman gave it to the pelican :-)

This is the question everyone asks. The ring around the neck is a very pale, barely visible ring. The ring on the bill, however, is very noticeable. So why wasn't it named a ring-billed duck? I have no idea. Smarter people than me named this duck, so there must be a good reason for the name they gave it.

In the photo below, you can barely see the reddish colored ring around the neck of the duck.

Only managed one shot before my new left eye started weeping into the viewfinder. I'll give it another couple of days but what a difference already! I can see what I'm shooting now before I get 'em onto the computer :-)
