Nature’s prime favourites were the Pelicans;
High-fed, long-lived, and sociable and free.

The weather has been pretty wet and ordinary around Lake Macquarie lately, not the best for taking photos, although given how bad the drought is in NSW I don’t think anyone minds the rain. It was nice today though, sunny with a bit of a breeze, so I thought I’d go for a walk by the lake to stretch my legs and take a few shots.
I got a new camera the other day, a Sony A6500, and I’d been looking forward to putting it through its paces. So I was very happy when I came across Mr Percival the Pelican here as he made a very good model and seemed more than happy to pose for me! I guess the fame from Storm Boy has gone to his head.
The light around sunset was beautiful and I really like how the shot came out. Simple but sometimes that’s all you need.
Thank you, Mr Percival. You can pose for me any time. 😉

Mr. Percival definitely looks like he was posing for you. Nice shot!
Thank you! The pelicans are very friendly around here… they make great subjects!
