[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all,
Just a quick note cos I've got to get to the shops before they shut. This was taken at Al Areen Wildlife Park in Bahrain earlier this year. I cropped it fairly tight to the subject because otherwise the white of the bird contrasted too sharply with a large dark area of water to the right of the shot.
Levels adjusted
Cheers, John.

Bonjour John,
Il a une tête bien sympathique cet oiseau et, surtout, un sourire irrésistible.
Belle réalisation!


Wonderful! The sad eyes, tilt of the head and your final composition are just as they should be.

Hi John,
What a classic portrait, the focus down that long beak is spot on.
You certainly captured the birds (Pelican?) expression...priceless.
Well seen, great timing.
