Photographer's Note

Two curious over sized baby pelicans at Cildir Lake, Ardahan, Turkey. Ardahan is the area where Turkey has a border with the Republic of Georgia. The other sides of the mountains in the distance belong to Georgia. This pelican family is some of the inhabitants of the Cildir Lake. The lake actually freezes for 4-5 months in the winter. But the pelicans stay here, as fishing continue all through the winter and pelicans get plenty of food from the local people.
