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.
A brown pelican, from earlier this week, skis into the salt marsh almost making the water look like slushy snow. With those big pelican feet, they probably would make very good water or snow skiers.
Gteat shot Phil!
Thanks a bunch!
Amazing photo, Phil!
Glad you liked the pelican Deb!
perfecto – timing Sir
I appreciate that Scott thanks.
Does look like ice. I guess I was not too far off last post. They still must be pleased it is warm waters. Nice image to make one wonder.
So far some are still around, we had a few last March but not as many as this year.
Just like an enormous seaplane! I love the way you caught the sun on that lovely head!
Thank you Maggie, they are big fun birds!
This scene is so much more tropical than where I’ve been lately. Fantastic capture in such motion.
We are expecting a real warm up too! Wonder if we will get a surprise spoonbill visit like last April?
But of course you will. Here’s hoping.
Wow, that’s an extraordinary shot. Beautiful, and yes, it look like slush.
Thanks very much! Yes I thought it did look like he was plowing up the ice. 🙂
Beautiful shot, great capture captivating all the details of this beautiful bird.
Thanks a million Linda, glad you liked it!
Great shot. Great landing.
Thanks so much for checking it out!
Around here it would be ice!
Are ice days are gone until next winter. Although… we *could* get one last frost on Sat. night after close to record breaking warm up on Thur. Crazy here!
What great detail! Really does look exactly like slushy snow, having skied a LOT of it! 🙂 He’s quite the guy.
