Default The Other "P" Word

This time, the same lens, the same place, but the much smaller Brown Pelican.

Nice shot Tom.

Personally I would crop to get the bird placed on the Rule of Thirds left hand cross-sections and away from the centre ? Worth looking at perhaps.

There are a bunch of boats just above the Pelican which is why I didn't crop it further down and back.

Love the brown pelicans, they are such interesting birds, even if fishermen think they are pests.

Actually, the photo is cropped so that the Pelican and its reflection is close to the rule of thirds line, but I was limited quite a bit by the boats just out of the photo at the top.

They look so awkward. Nice moving shot.
