Not my ususal type of post, but I found it quite interesting to see the pelicans and the people swimming together in harmony. Neither seemed to be bothered by one another.

Enjoy your day !

Hi Julie

Good layering here in the composition with wonderful repetition of the pelicans at the back & the bathers in the fg. Nice to see so much wildlife. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the skin tones & blue water. Tfs!

Bom dia Julie,
Good and harmonious coexistence and a beautiful picture. Actually this scene could not be lost.

Hi Julie,
A lovely mix-up of Nature and People! Perfect timing in this shot while the people are bathing the pelicans seem to be continuing their daily life job - hunting!
A very sharp image and an attractive panoramic frame. Lighting is superb!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Very nice capture of those swimmers but I see a line drawn in the water that separates the two groups. Good soft lighting and good details. Very well done, tfs.

It is really an interesting photo, aren't the pelicans afraid? Great scene, well captured

How interesting that the birds are so close to the people. THey must be very used to sharing the water with them.
Besides that, I really like the light here. Must have been late in the day? Very nice soft light from the left. Well done Julie

Hello Julie.

It is a very humerous capture, the two faces we see have expressions to add words to, the mind runs away with so many lol. Very well seen and taken Julie, love it.

People and birds together having a bath, I did not see this yet...every for the view!
Fantastic composition, very original in natural colours, and the perfect light.
