Artist's Description

Taken at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands Ecological Preserve in Huntington Beach, California.

This Brown Pelican is perched on the exact smae rail as the preening Snowy Egret in my gallery.

I took this photo before I had gotten a telephoto kit for my camera, so I had th be pretty close. It took the better part of an hour, but eventually I got within 8-10 feet of this guy. He wasn’t nervous, but as you can see, he kept a close eye on me.

After about 200 photos, I left him perched there and wandered to another part of the wetlands. Returning an hour later, I found him still there so I got many more photos from the other side, this time highlighting him against the sky.
