Working The Tide, Brown Pelican

Working The Tide, Brown Pelican

I was about to give up on this Pelican. The tide might have been turning because there was no diving. The big lens gets heavy after a while and I was putting my arms down more and more. Sure sign it’s time to quit.

However at the last minute this bird made the turn.

While shooting this I didn’t notice the Pelican in the background. But it added to the images nicely.

And of course the best part, the full dive.

All the while that other bird hovered waiting for his chance.
