I dropped by University (Louisiana State) lakes a couple of weekends ago to try some bird shots. The Pelicans usually hang out on the far side of the lake, out of range of my longest lens (200mm). A couple of them decided to take flight and I managed this shot. I thought it was worth posting.

These things are huge!

Great capture!!! BIF are hard enough, but to get the moon in there also is outstanding.

Very cool shot. I remember how big they were when we used to see them when we used to visit Florida. I never could see how they could fly.
