Pelicans at the harbour of San Juan del Sur
I don't know for which fish they are waiting, but the Pacific offshore fishing will score you Black Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, and Dorado. Nicaragua’s inshore fishing can be just as exciting, and will score you Rooster Fish, Jacks, Barracudas, and Mackerels.

Hi Achim, wow what a unique composition, I have not seen so many pelican at one time before, let alone a group of them on a boat. Beautiful strong colours and nice sharpness. Great job, TFS and have a beautiful day, Lisa

A good capture of these pelicans waiting to seize their chance on a passing fish. I like the juxtaposition with the open air restaurant in the background waiting for the human diners to start appearing. Very good colours and sharpness.

The point of view is taking my eyes toward the restaurant which is giving depth to the composition. It is also shwoing the deatils and colors of the pelicans. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

The boat is well positioned, and the pelicans seem to be enjoying the ride. Curisou shot, congratulations!

funny one. I've seen some pelican boats but this one is really loaded.

very interesting this picture of this small boat crowed of pelicans. The colors and water reflections are wonderful. Great job, my friend.

This one looks like a very calm and interesting place to relax, looking at the sea and making a beer in the terrace.
The pelicans on the old boat offer us a very funny scene.
An excellent work, my friend.

riclopes (35577) 2010-03-03 2:52
haha, kind of a humourous scene, Achim. I wonder how much they pay to rent that boat...judging by the old look of it and being so many, it must have been quite cheap for each pelican. Nice tropical mood, very atractive color of water.
have a nice day,

Before using his boat, the owner will need to make a good cleaning!!! Beautiful and amusing photo on this gathering of pelicans. I appreciate much the good luminosity of the image, it is very pleasant. Thank you Achim.
With all my friendships and a very good end-of-day,

A unusual crew of pelicans to man this old boat!
All the best,

Ciao dear Achim,
very nice image, captured with excellent photo quality. The scene is very funny, with these pelicans waiting for dinner as we do when we're at a restaurant. Congratulations for the beautiful idea!
Ciao, have a nice evening!

I think a nice setting, with great lighting in a perfect frame.
Great point of view and of itself, appears to be a very nice site. Thanks for sharing.

This scene is a really surprising mixture of wild nature and man-made landscape. It is captured with the excellent composition, beautiful colors and soft light. The pelicans in the foreground are the main compositional element, looking very impressive. A very unusual and exotic shot!
xuaxo (6846) 2010-03-08 10:56
This is a very interesting shot. I didn’t see the pelicans in the thumbnail, therefore it was a very nice surprise to click and open the photo.
Good to see here Nicaragua, a country not so usual at TE.
Angshu (56406) 2010-03-10 22:24
In the thumbnail, these pelicans are not visible as their colours merge with the boat. Interesting scene with good contrast with the blue water. There seems to be throng of people in the BG...Well done!

Hi Mr President
Flying sailors on board, nice and interesting scene.
