[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A resident species spotted billed pelican starts his take off run at a local river in Sri Lanka. This place is a 7 minute hike from my place and I spent 5 days- up every morning at 6 before the sun came up trying to capture this. The pelican comes much earlier than that but the light was too low to attempt a shot and I waited for the right light and moment to capture this. Any comments welcome and thanks for viewing.

Hi Dilshan,

timing is perfect as well as any other technical matter, my doubt is the greenish halo surrounding this image.Probably out-of-focus leaves in FG.Unfortunately the effect created in this way it isn't all that it should be.However i believe the subject deserved to get up at an ungodly hour for 5 days in a row.



Wow! Great timing and capture of this pelican. They look so uncoordinated taking off. Great lighting with good dof and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Quel timing parfait !
très impressionnant...



Dear Dilshan,

The "morning run" is indeed good for health, and this is what this lovely bird is doing I think :)
Great focus and perfect clarity with amazing mirror-reflection and that too when the bird was in motion.
You have frozen the moment with nice sharpness and great light.
A nice display of various color tones too.

Thanks and regards,
