"Wings Open" by P950

Most of the birds I photograph have wings shut, so it's a treat when I find myself in a position to shoot wings open.  Tried to keep the sun at my back, but it's not always possible.  Using Target Finding focus mode works the best in this situation.

Great Egret with oil well pumpjack in the background.  Yes, energy production & wildlife can & do co-exist.

Turkey Vulture with perfect feathers.

American White Pelican fishing party.

Fishing Hole, with Egrets, Herons, Ibis & more.

American White Pelican, with Canada Goose in the background.

That is another flock of pelicans arriving from their 1,000 mile migration in the background.

So many pelicans!

"Wings Up, Wings Down"  Those are Great Egrets by the shore.

Flying over to where the fish are.

...and the bonus is more Pelicans, as seen through the P1000 EVF:

I really do prefer the size & weight of the P950.  It's the "goldilocks" camera for me.
