White Pelicans

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.
