Pelican gets tricked.. by LjMaxx

Currently unavailable for purchase

by me to take his picture. I told him that it would be seen in National Geo’s October issue… so he obliged me. Ok.. So I lied to him.. I just really wanted the head on view in flight… Thanks for cking out my Pelican series of photographs. No special P.S. effects or the sort, basic editing only.

Nikon D60 55/200

    Your ploy worked very well Lj…provided you with a marvelous photo!!!!
    I always thought pelicans were white.. so was amazed to see the coloring on this one!!

  • Thanks Ken.. Many are white.. I think there are several variations of color. :)

    Another brilliant Pelican shot Lj. Your Pelican week indeed, show us more of them. Well done.

  • Oh.. I have so many.. I think they might kick me off the site should I continue.. I just love the birds. I spend a lot of time hiking, often alone and they give me much enjoyment and camera practice.. T.Y. Paul.. ~:)
