A pelican stares out at the world. I think that I may have uploaded this on my other account, but I refined it a little and I really like the results :)

Thank you so much @Axna! This was actually taken in a zoo where the pelican was resting with it's buddies (I don't think they were supposed to be part of exhibit) But he was resting really peacefully so I took the photo, thinking that I could later do this. Luckily, I was! I used a photo editing software and darkened to shadows so that the lighter colors (the eyeball, wing, and head) would stand out against the dark. I'm glad that you like it - I worked really hard to make sure it was the best it could be.
