This was taken with a Tamron 70-300 at 300mm. A little more work on the image removed the purple fringing on his shoulders and feet (I haven't posted this version). His shoulders and neck are sharp enough for me. The wings and fanny are soft. It really is a Pelican self portrait. He had been still so I set 2-sec timer on a tripod. He took off and here it is. The image is only cropped on the right to make it square. He positioned himself with his wing leaving the frame on the left. I like his choice.
