Had a great day shooting at Alafia with James, Sid and Michael.
It was a great day and full of action. Caught this Pelican taking a bath. Cloned out a few lighter spots in the dark area in the BG.

If you are interested in getting some nice spoonbill and other shots, this is a great place to photograph. Check out James Shadle's Tour for more info.
