"Plicans in action."


Mysore, IN
          

Dear All,

These spotted pelicans are nesting now near our home in a lake belonging to the university. Last Sunday I had a great time shooting them. There are hundreds of them, by Jan they will have family.

This particular one made a spectacular approach and you can see the action. All shot in the same brust.

All shot with D3, 200-400 VR, @ 400, F-4.5, 1/1000, ISO 400, on tripod mount.

Great set Pakku. Well done. Nothing like being at the right place, at the right time with the right gear, at the ready. Did he catch what he was chasing?....Scotty.

An awesome series Pakku! I didn't know any pelican species hunted in this manner. Quite an education.

Good shootin'

Thank you Vaughn and Tom, its always pleasure to here from you all.
Vaughn I am not sure he was hunting may be taking a sip of water or
gathering nesting materials but Have seen them playing like this many times.
Thanks for looking and commenting.
