Taken from the side of a boat. This pelican would fly by and land. Then take off and land again. I braced myself up against the gunwale and followed it with the camera. Captured this just as it was landing.

Nikon D70 with a Sigma 105mm macro lens.

    Great action shot and I like the lighting on its face with the contrast of the shadow on the wings. The focus is great too. I enjoy watching these interesting pelicans!
