Pelican, Quick Fly By

Eagles, Hawks, and Vultures fly high, and glide, using the thermals in the air. Pelicans do the same thing. Except rather than soar up high, they almost touch the surface of the water.

I was slightly above this bird as he flew at surface level right past me. The colors in the background here is the different shades of sun on the water.

After shooting the White Pelican flocks I decided to finish a few with different post processing methods. I will usually use a single finish for any group of images to keep everything consistent but huge white birds and contrasts seemed to pretty to not use a few styles.
