I am out of here. Brown Pelican


 
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner   I am out of here.  Brown Pelican
I am out of here. Brown Pelican
This will likely be my last post until the end of May. Off to Russia for 3 weeks tomorrow. Taken with the travel camera I will take with me the Canon Powershot SX50HS that has optical zoom from 24mm to 1200mm and is very light $400. Did not want to take the heavy EOS 1D Mark IV or 5D with all the heavy lens. Sorry I have not been able to comment recently very busy packing, planing and still working. I will catch up when I return. I hope to get some good photos to share. Emile.

  When you can get these kind of details of an inflight bird, why take another camera. What amazing details you bring out here and I love the colors of the bird against that pretty sky.
Enjoy your well deserved trip, be safe, know you will bring back some wonderful pictures for us to see.

  Congratulations, Emile. Until I started watching pelicans in flight more closely, I never realized how they seem to completely tuck away their legs, out of sight almost.
