…morning light is magic…

FeatherFest Bolivar Flats Field Trip – Part II

Here are some more of my photos from my workshop at FeatherFest at Bolivar Flats.  These Pelicans were hanging out on the barricade poles where you park.  We took advantage of the early morning light with this gang of Pelicans and then moved to the opposite side to get some silhouette shots.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II, handheld

  1. First photo is very cute.
    Reminds me of company employees having a morning meeting.
    The only thing missing is the coffee!

  3. Beautiful shots, Tim. There is something striking, captivating, and just so darned photogenic about the pelicans and you’ve captured them very well here.

    • Thanks Jim. They are very abundant in this neck of the woods and I take them for granted sometimes. I love the colors that the Brown Pelicans display.
