Meandering with camera…
WOW! Great *action* shots!! Whether they are named correctly or not! Love it!
Thanks Tahira. I was unbelievably thrilled to catch them.
Great photos…I agree with the person who posted on the Oceans wave making some interesting splash on your first flight picture of Pelican. Lovely pictures!
Thank you for visiting and for commenting. I thought that wave splash was pretty cool, too.
Gull is thinking Stones:
Hey! (Hey) You! (You) Get off of my cliff!
Love these, I also snapped a Brown Pelican today. He was complacently sitting at a harbor entrance.
Can’t wait to see it!
Great shot, through your misty foggy summer seas:)
Thank you WLG… I was totally thrilled to catch it.
Know what you mean!
Love that fourth shot with the rock for the back-drop of the pelican…nice capture in flight, Miss Gunta….
Picture this… I’m walking along the beach, watching the gulls flying around that rock and landing. I had almost walked past it when something landed on the end farthest from me. I looked back and caught a glimpse of a shape larger than the usual gull. I walked back to investigate and realized I had a chance to catch this one. I even had the right lens on and the camera at the ready. You can imagine the thrill after missing out on several other wonderful opportunities. And I only had to wait about four minutes for him to take off in flight. By the way, this was the same rock that was totally out of the water during the minus tide (remember where the youngster was standing staring out to sea?) This time it was high tide, so the rock was completely surrounded by water.
Like you, I really liked that last shot in flight, but I got a kick out of what the surf was doing in the first flight shot, too. (click, click, click…) 🙂
Wow…how wonderful is that?! Very exciting. 🙂
Lucky you! Right place right time
Oh! I sent special thanks to my lucky stars! 😉
Great catch, Gunta! Beautiful to see!
Thanks Laura. He (she?) was certainly beautiful to see. Even more so in real life.
What beautiful pics of the pelican! I love all birds. Thanks for always sharing:)
Wow! love them Gunta!
Me, too. And I wish I could share the “wow” I was feeling when I was right there watching this guy! It was pretty amazing.
That pelican is huge. Can’t wait to get back to Florida to see the ones we have on the lake in our back yard. 😉
I’ve had them guys fly over me on several occasions and never seemed to have the camera ready. One time I had just climbed over the bank that leads to the beach and there were maybe a dozen of them skimming along the edge of the surf. Of course, I didn’t have the camera handy. I was so incredibly happy to catch this guy -and I almost missed him as I told newsy below.
Goodness, your brown herons are huge – our black variety looks positively puny in comparison. Lovely shots. See you’ve got the fog back.
I goofed by calling it a heron. It’s actually a Brown Pelican (I corrected the post)… but some of our herons are even bigger than the pelican in this post.
Ah, the beak had me curious. We never see pelicans – gorgeous birds.
Lucky you to have caught the heron in such dramatic manner.
Lucky me indeed! I had already walked past the rock he landed on, but I just happened to catch a glimpse, so I backed up for a better look. Then I waited around for him to fly off. It was pretty exciting.
ooops, I called it a heron when it’s actually a pelican. (I changed it in the post)
