Photographer's Note

We had an opportunity to travel to Port Stephens (Shoal Bay)in April. This is a great place to just wander around and take photographs.

I followed these guys around for about a half an hour waiting for the perfect pose, and they stuck pretty close together, so even before I took their picture I was calling them "The Three Amigos".

They are Australian Pelicans. You see them very often along the shore waiting for scraps from fishermen, or you might see them flying. They are a lot more graceful then they would appear from standing on the ground. When they are standing they are quite tall, about the size of a small child; much larger than the ones I am used to from the Southern US.

This photograph was scanned from a 35 mm slide, I did some adjustment for shadows and highlights, adjusted the levels a bit and finally cropped it to an 8 x 10 format. It just looked better that way to me.
