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, a brown pelican flies above the tree tops silhouetted by warm setting sunlight.
Gorgeous silhouette! Looks award winning, Phil.
Have a wonderful weekend, Dina
Hey thanks very much Dina, great to hear you like the pelican silhouette.
Hope you enjoy your weekend.
Beautiful atmospheric artwork 🙂
Thanks very much for looking and commenting, I appreciate it.
Great sunset on the week and such a beautiful way to begin the weekend.
Hopefully the scene looks warming because it got cold here for the weekend. 🙂
What a great silhouette – he’s got a distinctive profile. 🙂
Yes you can’t miss that big ole pelican bill! 🙂
Thank you Pat, glad you enjoyed the pelican!
Nice! Love shooting birds against the setting sun!
I was hoping I might get an alligator floating by because the water was the same color as the sky only more sparkly. 🙂 But most of our gators are done for the season. Always nice to see the birds though.
I am such a sucker for silhouette shots…especially against that beautiful colored backdrop. The fact that it’s nature just makes it all kind of miraculous.
Well I truly appreciate your very kind comments and I feel the same way about silhouettes. If it can’t be an alligator, a bird is nice too. 🙂
And here I thot it was a black pelican – yes terrible joke but couldn’t resist since you seem to have so many species there.
Fantastic shot. I like that you can even see orange in his beak.
Often at that time of day, everything out there is back lit so pretty much all the birds are black birds. I bet lots of photographers come back with quite a few (unintentional) silhouettes.
Thanks for the heads up on my comment to Dina. As you know, I have eagles on the brain tonight based on current developments. Now if I would have thanked her for commenting on the “penguin” silhouette, that would have made perfect sense. 🙂
Fantastic silhouette, Phil. 🙂
Well you can’t go wrong with that prominent bill, the pelicans always manage to look good. 🙂
I appreciate you looking and commenting and glad you liked the pelican shot.
How I love your sunset pictures, Phil! Brilliant!
Sometimes it’s worth sticking around to see if the sky looks interesting later plus it always helps if the birds stay as well. 🙂
