Pelican Files

I need to add a separate file in Lightroom for pelicans.   I have so many pelican photos, it's kind of funny to me.   And I have probably deleted as many as I've kept.   I don't set out to take photos of them, but sometimes happen upon dozens or hundreds or maybe just one all by itself.   I can't resist their dinosaur-like selves.   They look interesting when flying, when standing, when floating on the water, and of course when they dive down to catch a fish.

I've not yet mastered capturing the dive because you can't know which one will dive, or when, or where.   Suddenly there's a splashdown.   And another, and another.   I happened upon another such pelican-palooza in Cambria last week with dozens feeding in the surf coming in against the rocks.

How can you not enjoy pelicans?   

Have a very nice Tuesday and I will be back soon with more pelicans (!) and an update on the kitchen.

just beautiful and fascinating birds. :)
Absolutely. How could you not enjoy them. They are so goofy looking, yet smack the water with a surprising grace. Love 'em.

So you are a pelican nut also. I also have ALOT of pictures of them. We have white ones here. There are just so many interesting things about them.
I love your pictures. Great that you can get them from above!
Pelicans are one of my favorites to watch at the this crowd!...:)JP

They are very pre-historic looking. Look like they were designed by a committee!

Wow! Those are great pictures. I don't think I've ever seen any of your pelican pictures before. Looking forward to more.

they are descended from pterosaurs … and when i am down along the river watching the gulls swoop and dive i keep my finger on the shutter and weed out the non dive shots after… just a thought

oh i keep meaning to tell you i finally figured out where that damn spot was coming from that i kept seeing on the photos .. it was on the back of the lens .. i blew it off with canned air …and saved myself $$$ sending the camera out to be cleaned!
