Pelicans In The Golden Hour

For a short time I was in the center of these Pelican feeding, and it was the golden morning light. Even in the best light it rarely is an actual gold.

It was very gold this morning.

This was part of a flock that was pushing through the marsh feeding. Luck was with me since I had found an opening in the grasses wide and low enough to catch the groups all around me.

A Marsh Gathering (Best Viewed Large)

For all those days that we struggle to find wildlife these days make up for them.

I just commented to Mike Powell (Click Here) how I remember ‘Mutual Of Omaha, Wild Kingdom’.

Well, this is why.

Looking For Large Flocks

This photograph was taken in a spot we usually drive right through. Just down this dirt road are miles of large open water ponds and marshes.

I really just turned my long lens on the road ahead and grabbed a shot.

The sun was coming up over some fog, the air was crisp, there were the sounds of the morning ‘critters’.

It was simply a really nice morning.

This Spoonbill was moving between marsh ponds in the morning. They tend to feed until late morning, then rest until the evening.
