Pelican Sunset

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Dave Rosser, Nov 5, 2005.

  1. As I mentioned in a previous post my wife and I have just come back from a birding holiday in the lower Rio Grande valley area of Texas. We were staying on South Padre Island and visited the nature reserve at the convention centre there frequently. These few shots of brown pelicans were taken on our last evening there. All with D1H/80-400VR combo.

    Thanks for the comments. I shot over a 1000 pics on my 3 week holiday in Texas, a lot have already been consigned to the great bit basket in the sky :Bohoo: and I am still sorting through the rest for the real keepers but I should have a few more to share with you soon.
