Great White Pelican Pelecanus onocrotalus. London Zoo, London, United Kingdom. Photographer: Pedro Jarque Krebs, Peru. Category: Creative Imagery. HONOURABLE MENTION. Photographer’s Story: ‘I took this photo while on a visit to London Zoo, just at the moment the pelicans were being fed. Two zookeepers were stationed on either side of their pond and fed the pelicans alternately. As a result the three birds were obliged to run from one side to the other, making them work for their dinner. In addition to giving the pelicans a bit of healthy exercise, it meant that the keepers could ensure that the fish were distributed equally and fairly, and all three pelicans got a decent meal.’ Canon EOS 5D MkIII with Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens. 70mm focal length; 1/500 second; f/4; ISO 160. Monopod.
