Default How low can you go

Pelicans get lift by flying low to the water compressing the air below them, they can keep this up for about 20 to 30 yards depending on the wind. I couldn't get a nice reflection shot but was still happy with the results. All shot with DAL 55-300

Hans,

Great photos! I like the series, ending with putting on the brakes.

Thanks for the comments guys, I was hoping for some reflections of those guys flying that low but it was not to happen, maybe next year. I was skunked for pelican shots for 2 1/2 months then found more that I could keep up with on my last visit to the beach.
