ASHVIN TRIVEDI – ‘Hard-won Meal’
‘Hard-won Meal’ The photographer managed to capture this dramatic image of a Great Cormorant Phalacrocorax carbo trying to retrieve a stolen fish from inside the pouch of a Dalmatian Pelican Pelecanus crispus in the deep waters of Gujarat’s Lakhota lake. Clearly, the cormorant took on more than it had bargained for! The much larger pelican snapped down on the slender neck of the cormorant, which, nevertheless managed to retrieve its neck, if not its intended meal.
