When I arrived at the Albany jetty I was very disappointed that the sky was cloud-covered and very boring, but as a pelican was nearby I couldn't resist capturing his actions as he preened his feathers. But once the pictures were downloaded onto my computer, I quite liked the effect, as is helps the pink beak stands out so well.
When I look at some of my zoo shots, I wish I had been there on overcast days more often. Quite a few of them are ruined either by blown-out highlights or deep shadows, and generally too harsh light.
wow...how did u managed to capture it in this position...and on that background...i got to admit it...the first time i looked at it...i thought the background was digitally added...but now...it doesn't look like that...it fits perfectly. nice one!
