I really like this! What an awesome stop-action you were able to get -- with him facing you. Great colors!

Really nice capture. Ideally I'd like the pelican to be on the right hand side of the frame (or at least right of center). I would suspect that you did some cropping on this so I would also suspect this is possible.

I really like the detail you captured and the frozen drops of water are terrific.
