Pakku -

What a great series! I've never seen a pelican even try to do this. Perfect timing on the second image. WOW!

Nice shooting Pakku. The water droplets really enhance the action. All good shots, but #2 stands out....Scotty.

Great series Pakku!! An unusual, but wonderful perspective. Also, these pelicans appear to hunt differently than the brown pelicans in the US. Quite an education!

Good shootin'

Thank you all for the those nice words & comments. Vaughn I too am surprised to hear that the Pelicans out there have diff habit. I have a feeling more than hunting they seem to play like this, because I have seldom seen them catch a fish like this, but have seen picking the nesting materials.

Thanks again.

Pakku
