I took this shot of Dalmatian Pelican with the famous 'Rozafa Castle' in the background from the boat sailing on Shkodra Lake, Albania.


Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus) is a majestic bird that is known for its large size and distinctive appearance. It is one of the largest pelican species and can be found in parts of Europe and Asia. Shkodra Lake, located in Albania and Montenegro, is a known habitat for this species of pelican.


When flying, the Dalmatian pelican is a remarkable sight to behold. Its wingspan can reach up to 3.5 meters (11 feet), making it one of the largest flying birds in the world. Its wings are broad and powerful, allowing it to soar effortlessly above the water and across great distances.


As it flies above Shkodra Lake, the Dalmatian pelican may be seen gliding low over the water's surface, or soaring high above the mountains that surround the lake. Its distinctive plumage, which includes white feathers with black markings and a bright orange bill, makes it easy to spot even from a distance.


Dalmatian pelican is an important part of the ecosystem in Shkodra Lake, as it feeds on fish and helps to control their population. It is also a popular sightseeing attraction for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts who come to the area to witness the beauty of this magnificent bird in flight.


All digital purchased pictures are 300 dpi resolution.


A resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) is considered to be the standard resolution for printing high-quality images. DPI refers to the number of dots that can be printed in a one-inch row. When you have a high dpi, it means that the printer can produce a higher level of detail in the image, resulting in sharper and crisper prints.


The importance of 300 dpi resolution for a picture is significant, especially when you want to print it. If you're printing an image with a lower resolution, such as 72 dpi, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. This is because the printer cannot produce enough dots to accurately represent the image, resulting in a loss of quality.
