PELICAN TALES FROM THE WETLANDS

 

pelican best

….there’s one in every crowd

I’ve just returned from a wilderness shoot on Lake Murray in Papua New Guinea feeling somewhat daunted by the appearance of a fellow photographer who arrived with a massive 600mm lens (my largest was a mere 210mm).

Faced with the prospect of returning with lesser images of birdlife, I called on the gods to deliver me a miracle.

My name has since moved into folklore among the wetland guides after showing them this picture (above) on my computer.
