Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Dot, I like the green posts and the blue sky with a hint of pink in it. These elements really make this image stand out among other pelican photos. Well done!

  • Thanks so much for your kind comment, Bonnie. This photo was a bit of a challenge…very dark, and I wasn’t sure I could get the light right and still have some detail. Hope it looks okay!

    This is wonderful, Dot.Love the composition, the clarity and the color. Where was this? I remember you mentioning that you had had some fun with these guys.

  • Thanks so much, Margaret. This was taken in St. Pete at The Pier. (Unfortunately to read my description, you have to toggle over to the Description page…I really don’t like this RB change for that reason.)
