Re: And a New Life Begins!

Such a beautiful bird. I hope they make it to adulthood and I hope you can capture more.

Thanks all for comments

I was able to shoot those GBH at the crack of dawn with the light directly at my back. Very rare opportunity.

Same for the RRBB, but they are very difficult to expose so that you get detail in the black feathers and avoid blowing the red patch. Sometimes it is better to have some light cloud cover for them.

Re: More from the Gulf coast of Florida

Very nice series, I love the tricolor and the pelicans. I would love to get shots of brown pelicans, all I ever see are the white variety.
