Artist's Description

The American White Pelican is one of the largest birds in North America.

They migrate through the Chicago area in large flocks in the spring and fall.

It is really interesting to watch them take off from the water as this one was when I was lucky enough to get the shot. They actually appear to be running on the surface of the water for some distance before achieving lift off and can make quite a racket and lots of splashing.

This shot was captured at Lake Nelson Marsh in Batavia, Illinois (USA) with a Canon 7D DSLR and a 100-400 mm Lens.
