Some juvenile pelican portraits taken on an overcast morning, backlit and too far for fill flash, plus a floater:

This is still the 55-300mm? the more I see of these shots, the more I think about getting one.
I especially like number 2. very sharp!

Thanks, GW. Yes, these are (finally) the last of that first day's shoot. Enough pelicans for a while! :whack:

Be sure to check out the Tandem Diving thread in the Wildlife forum (from another day's shoot) for some fast action shots with this combo:

Very nice shots! Pelicans are such fun birds to photograph - well brown ones are. The one time I tried the white variety, I didn't do very well - about as well as I do shooting great egrets, which is terrible.
