Really nice capture Gus, nice composition also. You might consider -0.66EV to suppress the highlights a bit.

Thanks for sharing.

Dick.

Nice shot. His legs look almost too big, don't they. WOW. I never noticed their legs either. This guy is very nice looking. The ones we have are brown and not nearly as good looking. Great capture!

Nice capture Gus. You handled the exposure well in that strong light.

Question, Gus
How do these pelicans eat?

Our brown ones dive from the air into the water, but the white ones we have get together and sort of "herd" the fish into their circle.
