DALMATIAN PELICAN (PELICANUS CRISPUS) - DANUBE DELTA

The Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus) is the most massive member of the pelican family, and perhaps the world's largest freshwater bird, although rivaled in weight and length by the largest swans. They are elegant soaring birds, with wingspans that rival that of the great albatrosses, and their flocks fly in graceful synchrony.

The Dalmatian pelican is found in lakes, rivers, deltas and estuaries. Compared to the great white pelican, the Dalmatian is not as tied to lowland areas and will nest in suitable wetlands with many elevations. It is less opportunistic in breeding habitat selection than the great white, usually returning to a traditional breeding site year after year unless it becomes completely unsuitable. During the winter, Dalmatian pelicans usually stay on ice-free lakes in Europe or jheels (seasonal lakes) in India. They also visit, typically during winter, inshore areas along sheltered coasts for feeding.

This pelican usually migrates short distances. It is dispersive in Europe, based on feeding opportunities, with most western birds staying through the winter in the Mediterranean region. In the Danube Delta, Dalmatian pelicans arrive in March and leave by the end of August. It is more actively migratory in Asia, where most of the birds that breed in Russia fly down for the winter to the central Middle East, largely around Iran through to the Indian Subcontinent, from Sri Lanka, Nepal to central India.

Hi Marius,different species but the same quality,fantastic capture in the best camera settings for the best result,i haven't other words,the pic talks himself!! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hi Marius,
Your previous post was absolutely perfect, this one, although the pose is very spectacular and the composition's fine, is a little overexposed as I see areas on the white plumage where details were lost. Just a nyance, indeed - probably if you use f/7.1 instead of 5.6 with the same shutter speed, this problem didn't even occur. White balance seems a little bit more cyan than the optimal for me. Anyway, I'm waiting for more pics of your Danube delta series as the potential's surely there!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Marius,
Another beautiful shot. Details look good and well for used. Just a few parts got little bit overexposed, otherwise a perfect work.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
Srikumar
