The Sunday BIRD Volume 8, Issue 13. September 9, 2012
Sep 9, 2012

Good Morning All,

Last week somebody suggested that it was too bad that I didn’t get a shot of a Pelican hitting the water. So I went out this week and tried to get one but no luck

It is extremely difficult to track a plummeting Pelican that is accelerating and then catch the moment of impact when the bird is rapidly decelerating! I did get a shot, but it is, as I was afraid it would be, out of focus. I included it so you could see what happens to the wings upon impact.

You can help the BIRD from becoming a confused mess.

1. Please post your photos first, a maximum of 5 or 6, please. Post again if you need , as replies to this post before you comment on anyone else’s photos .

2. IMPORTANT: please replace the Sunday BIRD title in the Subject window with one that describes your photos or they will be missed .)
3. After that, make any comments you wish on the photos already posted.

4. But don’t put your photos inside a reply to another post, because others won’t see them.

5. Many photographers (especially newer ones) gain from knowing your EXIF data, especially: Camera, lenses, ISO, metering and focusing methods.

Mine follow.
Cheers and Chirps,
Richard Pavek
