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.
Early this evening, just as I was leaving the salt marsh, this pelican decided it was time for him to call it a day as well.
He flew across the marsh reeds on his way out with the entire scene lit by warm setting sunlight.
I love that yellow glow of the setting sunlight!
It is nice light that time of day, and when it matches up with low tide in the marsh it all works out. Well, if there are birds around. 🙂
Love that evening light! Superb shot, Phil!
Late afternoon/early evening low tide works out nicely when we get a low warm sunset. Thanks for looking.
Now that actually looks like a BROWN pelican.
They actually are mostly all brown as immature juveniles, but have pretty much no brown as adults. Hey don’t ask me I didn’t name them. 😉
Beautiful shot, and yes, it is a brown pelican, only used to see white ones way down south, these are really beautiful too. Love pelicans in all colors….
We see the brown pelicans year round here especially around the beaches and inlets. We only see the white ones intermittently but they are very large birds. All are fun to watch and photograph. 🙂
Fantastic shot, Phil! 🙂
Thank you Sylvia, I let the birds do all the work and I just snap the picture. 🙂
Simple! Not! 😀
I love this! Your sunset shots are incredible, Phil! Many congratulations on those wonderful pictures of the eagle in flight, carrying the duck, you had a great spread in the Daily Mail online, here in the UK!
Thank you so much Maggie! Apparently The UK Mirror ran it in their print edition on Sat. too so some additional exposure.
Beautiful bird, light and photo. You always catch the birds at the perfect moment.
Thanks a million Donna, I’m glad you enjoy seeing the various wildlife from the marsh!
So stunning. I love the warm tones of the light.
Really like these guys. I liked how all their body parts go with how stock and compact they are. The light is fantastic!
