Brown Pelican In Flight

It’s officially winter, and cooler, so less ocean wildlife photography.

They are still there, I’m just not a fan of the cold. At least in the swamps trees break up the wind.

The shore Pelicans have not received much web site space lately.

A small series of in flight shots to give them equal billing.

I noticed in this series the bird has something in his bill. You can see a shape, and maybe something protruding from his bill.

I don’t know how successful he was, but he had no competition.

And yes, the shrimpers really are very colorful.

I know some equipment is a specific color for a reason, like the green nets. Others, the plastic bins, they may have been on sale.

This image is also a good example of why I went back to looking through film and equivalent digital filters. Kodachrome 64, above, was the standard 35 mm for years and the only Kodak film created specifically for the consumer market. The colors are vibrant.
