The other night, my husband suggested we walk to the lagoon behind our local supermarket to see if we could photograph some pelicans. Once we got there, it was a bit of a bushwhack through thistle, ice plants and other weeds (note to self: wear long pants next time!) to get to a good angle where we weren't shooting into the sun. We were rewarded with lots of American White Pelicans coming in for the evening. I've been wanting a shot of White Pelicans in flight for a while, and this is the first time I've succeeded in getting them in focus.
