I focused on this particular Pelican because he was moving slower than the others. Hey…it made the shot easier. I was really just looking to get the bird with a nice blue sky over Tarpon Bay, Florida.
Luck would have it the Pelican pulled into a hover, staring down below.
With no sign that I noticed he dipped and dove straight down.
With scenes like this I always shoot at a high shudder speed and around 10 shots a second. If no action the worse that happens is I have a few duplicates taken. I don’t want to miss the opportunities like this that may pop up.
