Pelican water skiing
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I never tire watching these magnificent birds, this one provided a series of images as it approached, landed and then 'froliced in the water before settling to preen.|
The variations in color are interesting but I am unable to tell male from female, insight would be welcome.

Very good action shot, nice bird, high q. picture, good timing and pose.
Your equipment makes me jealous!
Congratulations and TFS.
Fine action shot of this Pelican.
Good exposure, POV and details.

just the perfect moment! great sharpness in this action shot. imho a bit more space in front of the bird on the left side would even improve the compo

I am a fan of pelican watching as well.
What a fantastic moment you have caught, of this pelican skidding on the water surface upon landing.
Details are amazingly sharp, and the exposure is excellent on that white bird. Wonderful pose of the wings and feet.
You were just at the perfect spot!
TFS. : )
