Pelican #3 Takeoff

By billma
A closer look at a beautiful Ameican White Pelican. Shot in the wild and RAW. Taken at the Bear River Migratory Bird refuge in Northern Utah. Spent a day there with a birder friend and his scope. We recorded 42 species that day. He promises 75 when we go out later in May.

Six months ago I knew virtually nothing about birds or photography. Still know very little about either but the door is open and the love affair is in full bloom.

I appreciate the feeback on the others in this series, from Malcom and Miles and all of the others.

Your portfolio is so beautiful Bill - touch of genius and touch of love of it? There is great empathy behind that lens.
Don't know what I can add to the comments above, except carry on!
Kind regards, Kath
