For today i want to share these shots of the pelicans i made at the Amersfoort Zoo. There is a great large pelican population who have a great habitat with a lot of green ground spots around a large pond where they can swim and fish (see this wednesdaywalk post). Besides that the animals have a nice large habitat there are also a lot of viewing points created so you can watch all the animals from different angels.
Hope you like these clicks.

It has become quite a large post this as many shots made from these birds turned out great and i didn't want to make a selection out of these shots.
