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 fishing in the salt marsh this afternoon knocks back a tasty, but very tiny, tidbit. If you look close you can see a little bitty minnow inside that huge pelican pouch. 🙂
Well, I guess every little helps ……! What a brilliant picture, Phil!
That’s exactly it Maggie. There were a couple of these big guys out there and they were scooping up mouthfuls of those tiny minnows, but I guess you don’t always get a mouthful, sometimes it’s only one.
Wahaha! That’s such a great catch for you, Phil. Not so much for Mr. P. 🙂
Thanks a bunch Sylvia! There were a couple of these guys out there and they were at it for hours. So I guess they have no choice as it must take quite a bit of time to get full on tiny minnows which was all I saw them catching.
Very nice capture. Lee
What a great picture!! You really take some awesome on the spot at the right time pictures, how do u do it? Unless u carry a very small phone camera and a very good one. Carrying around heavy big cameras is very hard to get those type of pictures, your pics are very clear and beautiful so it seems they r taken with a great camera, care to share how u get such in the moment pics if done with large professional camera or even a phone camera ((which I never)) thought could take the same quality pics. Thanks
Wonderful capture – I had to show my son – he was totally in awe.
Impresionante captura!! me alegra volver a ver estas maravillas, saludos Phil
Your images are incredible. You just seem to be at the right place at the right time and have lots of patience. Thank you for sharing.
That’s a great comparison. Though he may not like you sending that photo around.
HAHA – did I detect a disappointed (embarrassed?) expression on his face, too?
WOW, my mouth fell open when I saw your capture, what an action shot!
the fish wouldn’t even touch the sides.
