There's a bird preserve here in HB that photographers frequent every morning. The cast of characters changes as the seasons change. Recently, we've been watching scores of pelicans gathering for breakfast.

They swim around until they spot a fish, then fly up in the air and "dive bomb" into the water to snatch it. Quite a sight.

Great shots. The detail of the feathers really stands out.

By the way, did you get a model release from that bird?? :-?
