Imagine timing this shot.

While that's a beautifully detailed photo, bees often hover around flowers, so it's not that difficult to photograph them in flight...

But the trick is in training the pelican to balance on its beak in shallow water...

If you want a tough timing shot, try catching a diving pelican at the instant its beak just touches the water...

The one serious conviction one should hold is that nothing should be taken too seriously.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without necessarily accepting it. -Aristotle
