I'm seeing a photo of Coca Cola (same shot as in today's Daily) - no Pelicans, no feathers.

Yes, I see them.

Nice image - I like the interesting postures, the composition, and how the colors and values are repeated in several elements.

I totally agree, amazing.

Don, how did you happen to be taking this shot at the same level as the nest?

Mike, the sunlight really aided in accentuating the colors and details.

We were at Viera Wetlands down in Florida, at some impound ponds. The roadway around the ponds was elevated somewhat, but I was actually below the level of the nest. But since I was so far away (long lens) I suppose it makes it appear as if it were taken at eye level.
