Blowing in the Wind

This brown pelican didn't let the wind or the cold bother him as he cruised around the boat launch looking for a snack.

Great shot. Looks like the 18-200 lens is a keeper.
Jeffery Stahlman07-Jan-2006 16:00
very nice, terrific light. I was wondering how you like the new 18-200?

Excellent image with very nice natural light and great detail on the bird...

Excellent detail; one could count the feathers. The catch light is nice as well. Vote.
Remember when the brown Pelican was endangered in LA? We had to restock from a flock we sent to Florida 30-40 years earlier, as I recall. Now they seem to be everywhere. One successes story.

Beautiful colors. He's posing for you at just the right angle.

Hope you made it worth his while. :) Nice warm lighting and super detail. I notice he's watching you. Maybe he thinks the camera is edible?

Great light, like the way the ripples mimic its feathers.

Good job getting that yellow sunlight right on his head Bre. Sure like the little waves--wind or a wake?

Nice shot, great lighting and it does look almost like he's smiling
