Brown Pelican Diving 3/3 (used in NYPL article on the Gulf Oil Spill Disaster)

Brown Pelican 3/3 (Pelecanus occidentalis) diving for food, in Morro Bay State Park Marina 09 Sept 2008, Morro Bay, CA.


(used in a NYPL article on the Gulf Oil Spill Disaster )


Tech note: 1/8000th sec. helped to guarantee a sharp capture of this fast diving bird. Ten frames per second allowed me to select the pose and height from the water shown here.
