Another remarkable shot of pelicans was taken by Giovanni Frescura who photographed the remarkable birds on Lake Kerkini in Greece. The photograph was created by a boat of fisherman shipping near the birds. He said ‘Those are Dalmatian pelican and the red colour is so particular only in mating time.’
13Special commendation Tracey Lund
One more entry by Tracey Lund received equal commendation who had taken photograph at the same lake. She said she wanted to capture how pelicans grouped together when they fight over fish. ‘The way they use their enormous beaks is extraordinary. I love these pelicans; each one has their own personality and unique hairstyle.’

Giovanni Frescura also entered another spectacular entry of a snowy owl swooping into the landscape. He revealed it was taken when it was very cold and the owl was flying right in front of him. Thus he felt it would be an interesting shot.
