A Fishing Circle, Pelican

A Fishing Circle, Pelican

There are two schools of thought on photographing wildlife. Sit and wait in a good spot, or move around between locations.

Most times I’m a mover.

This particular morning I changed my methods and pretty much parked myself in the same place. The sun and birds were moving around so I kept near a few holes in the tall grass.

It worked out OK. In this series a few White Pelican moved in a large circle, passing by me several times. By not moving I didn’t make them uncomfortable with me being there.

Of course I did give in later and moved around the area. The move worked out since Storks were dropping in near another open marsh.
