That is a great series! The exposure is dead on! Very nicely done.

These are wonderful! Exposure is tough with the white pelicans - the one time I tried they weren't very good. Where were these taken? The only place I've seen white ones is around the Salton Sea. Would love to know where I could see them that might be a bit closer.
Harriet, the White Pelicans here in Orange County probably move around from place to place - they have been in the San Gabriel River, Bolsa Chica, the Burris Sand Pits (along the Santa Ana River), and Upper NewporT Bay. I don't know that there is more than one group, but I have seen bigger groups than this one in the past. There were some in El Dorado Park in Long Beach a day or so ago. These were in a lake in a small city park near my home when I photographed them - they had been hanging around there for a while, mostly just loafing (I was lucky to catch them feeding when I did) but were gone when I went by there today. Hard to predict when and where they will be. They may have cleaned out whatever there was to eat in that small lake. They are big birds and obviously need a lot of food.

Then I may just have to make a trek out to the Salton Sea sometime in the near future. I had fun looking at all the egrets (various types) and pelicans, but my other half got bored pretty quickly.
