On my way home last evening I saw a group of 25 or more pelicans at the “Duck Pond.” An unusual sight to be sure. I don’t think the duck pond has any fish in it, certainly not enough to satisfy this group. The water is also very shallow in the pond right now and the water level continues to drop.
So when I drove by the pond (expecting to see a goose or two) I was surprised by this group. I drove down the road a little, parked the car and got my camera with the long lens. I keep it set up for wildlife encounters. I shoot at 1/1250 sec @ f8.0 with auto ISO. I was shooting into the sun so the ISO stayed around 400 – 640.
As soon as I fired the first shot they turned and gave me nothing but butts. 🙂
They promptly swam to the other side of the pond and as the image above shows even with the 600 mm lens this is as close as I could get.
Hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
