Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: Here are some pelicans feeding at Woy Woy on the Central Coast of New South Wales, about 80 kilometres north of Sydney. I know that Craig thinks I make these strange names up, but the place was named by the Darkinjung Aboriginal people and means "big lagoon". Some of the suburb names in the area are quite unusual, such as Down a Mountain, Kangy Angy, Tumbi Umbi and Ettalong. You can watch the pelicans be fed in Woy Woy at 3pm every day. The ladies who feed and care for these beautiful creatures do it for love - not for money. But any donations are gratefully received.

In my WS is a wider view of them.

I took this with a 70-200mm lens which allows you to zoom in on them, but doesn't really allow enough room. I think I cut the frame too tight at the left hand side.
