Excellent shots all of them, you must have had the best spot on the bridge. Though I now feel a bit silly, seeing as I lived in Huntington Beach, CA for over twenty years and never knew about that spot or the birds.

Thank you lesmore49,

I use a canon ef 400mm f5.6 lens with a canon 20d body. I shoot handheld.
I mostly shoot wide open at f5.6 to get the fastest shutter speed at ISO 400 inorder to freeze the action. My shutter speeds vary but I try to keep it above 1/1600. At 1/1600 you are gonna get a bit of movement blur on the wingtips. However when the pelicans are diving you really need shutter speeds of 1/3200 to get sharp shots.

Thanks for the detail. 1600 iso good to know. You must be younger and stronger than me to hold a camera body and heavy lens with that much stability.:|Les

1/1600 = the shutter speed actually. I usually shoot at ISO 400. In bad light I will bump it up to ISO 800 but usually not higher because of too much noise will compromise the image quality.
