I haven't been out much in the last month or two, so Sunday I went out, very very early, golden light time, and I went to visit some of my friends. We have several different resident pairs of Pelicans that stay throughout the year here on the Mississippi River. These two I named bonnie and clyde during the summer. Here they are this past weekend: D70, 450-650mm range with 200-400Vr lens and 1.7 attached, Tripod, f7.1, JPG, ultra windy 20mph/wavy day, (the lens was a chattering) thank goodness for VR. Was hard to meter this early on in the morning, on some shots the water was to dark or to light, and the birds being white had a tendency to be blown out, (meaning I was out of practice! ) but I think I finally got them dialed in. Glad I shoot digital. :smile: There was a bird watching group (around 15 people) out spotting for birds, but they ignored these guys, they were "only" Pelicans I heard someone say as they drove by me and my rig. I just smiled and enjoyed the windy morning. bonnie and clyde: Clyde surfing and flapping Bonnie sitting pretty through the waves: Clyde seems to be saying: What's that smell?
