First the Pelican will almost stop in mid air, hovering. Checking the fish below.
They can turn and twist with amazing speed. This is where most photographs are lost. It’s hard to keep up.
When they finally drop to hit the surface all I can do at this point is click the shutter.
If everything works out the bird catches fish, I get the sequence.
The Pelican does better than I do. But I did get this one.
