Gimme Fish by Yslen Gimme Fish by Yslen
I'm not sure what this pelican was doing, but to me it looks like it's asking for lunch!
Taken at Bristol Zoo.

edit (17/10/09): slightly better processed version uploaded

edit (22/01/10): now available as a print, or a mug, etc...

please note: uploading a higher resolution file (required for larger print sizes) has meant the "full view" is no longer quite as sharp as it was - the other file was sharpened specifically for display at that size, does anyone know of a way around this?

Gimme Fish by =Yslen I just love this! When I saw this, the first thing that went through my head was "open wide!" A great shot at just the right moment. ( Featured by kkart )
