They say location is everything… I agree.
Most of the time I was facing the other direction towards Bird Key. However this was the scene over my shoulder. The land is coastal South Carolina. Also the path of incoming Pelicans from the ocean.
I’ve never been in the path of a low flying flock before. I will say it makes for a great angle for photographs!
As they went by it wasn’t even the typical ‘bird butt’ shot. It was pretty amazing actually.
