Your pictures are remarkably good. I'm envious of your 'eye' and obvious skill.

What type of equipment, camera settings did you use ?
Thanks Steve, Lesmore49, Ellen and Flutelady. I use a canon 20D and canon 400mm f5.6 lens. No I was not holding out a fish for the pelican. It was diving right at the base of the bridge. I was actually getting hit by the water splash when it dove, that's how close I was to it. The pelican would take off, circle around and come right at me and then dive.

In regards to camera settings: Apeture priorty usually wide open at F5.6; center point focus only, AI- servo, continuous shooting, auto white balance, ISO 200-400 and for some of these shots -1 EV.

Thanks for the info on equipment/settings, Hung. Again great pictures.
