This prolific passing parade, pleasingly posing placidly paddling pretty pelican pairs, perspicaciously photographed at Greenwell Point, near the mouth of the Shoalhaven River on the south Coast of NSW Australia.

This river flows through the town of Nowra (as seen in my “Cambewarra Mountain View”) and its headwaters are “harvested” to supplement the Sydney water supply.

An old photographer and his dog trying to find what turns a photograph into a worthwhile picture. Perhaps try to take a worthwhile photograph in the first place?

    LOL…your comments are hilarious my friend. and this is a magnificent image of a flotilla of pelicans who are most obviously content and secure in the knowledge that the world belongs to them!!

  • G’day Ken!
    Do you have pelicans up your neck of the woods? They are a very relaxing and sometimes hillarious bird to watch, and I thank you for visiting this lot and listing them amongst your favourites!

    So that’s what happened!! Glad you clarified that George. Well photographed pretty, pairs of pelicans.

  • G’day Gail!
    There is an explanation for all things under Heaven. Some of mine may be a bit fancifull – but I may be right!? Glad you like our pelicanian friends.
