I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Earlier this week we had a nice looking group of five white pelicans floating around in the marsh pond. Always love seeing these big guys!
Great group shot of these big guys. Thanks Phil!
It’s nice when they form up a nice tight group isn’t it?! Thanks Lee
Five Pelicans floating….12 days of Christmas just popped in my head. Great capture
Good one! I had not thought of that song! 🙂
Great photos Phil! Nice light on these pelicans
Thanks Gareth, the day before, the lighting was awful but then it finally turned out nice.
Love the flotilla, Phil. Excellent.
Thanks Andrew, it is fun to see them form up in groups.
Great shot Phil.
Hey glad you like it Jan!
That is a cracking photo Phil. Excellent composition, love it. I don’t normally write these photo sort of terms, but I do think it is stunning.
Well I greatly appreciate your very kind words, thanks much!
They are so cute with their wet feathers.
Nice shot Phil
They are rather cute aren’t they?! Thanks Sophie!
I’m very much enjoying your pelican photos Phil. I do have a soft spot for these birds. They are so characterful.
I’m glad you like them Adrian and I enjoy watching the antics of these big guys quite a bit myself. 🙂
Such great contrast between the blue of the water and the immaculate white of the pelicans, Phil!
They did stand out nice, much better then the day before with grey water and grey sky.
When I saw this I just shook my head, as in “how on earth does he capture these great arrangements?!” Not only are they “arranged”, but they are arranged neatly size-wise, making a great harmonious shot! Beautiful! Water is lovely, like the muted reflections.
It continues to amaze me how these guys will form up into nicely arranged groups. It becomes an odd scene when one breaks away to go on it’s own, which does not happen often.
Love this image, Phil! Happy weekend 🙂
Thank you Amy, so glad you like it. 😀
Thanks a million!
That’s gorgeous – the tight formation really improves the image. Just for the record, all the pelican groups I have ever seen have been “nice looking.” 🙂
Well I’m very happy you enjoyed this photo and I thought this group was particularly nice looking. sometimes the brown pelicans can be a bit rough around the edges but I suppose they are still nice looking as well. 🙂
I enjoy seeing these images of the pelican flotillas, Phil. They really do seem to like grouping for their swims.
It is fun and interesting how they will form up into groups and then work together so that everybody ends up getting something to eat.
Stunning birds, Phil. What a great shot! They are so photogenic. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia and yes they are quite photogenic indeed!
PS: I want some. 🙂
For the first time ever we seem to have some extras, I’ll send them south for you. 🙂
Aren’t they gorgeous en masse!
