Brown Pelicans Fishing at Sunrise

Brown Pelicans were out in force last weekend at sunrise along the Gulf coast.  They would come close to shore diving for fish.  Had a blast tracking them as they flew in and dove into the water.  The take-off’s were fun as well.  Good opportunity for some action silhouette shots.

  4. Thanks Sheldon. I did make it back out there with a client on Sunday. Not ideal conditions but we got up close and personal with a Rail which was very cool.
