A stack of Pelicans

Brown Pelicans, Washington Oaks Garden’s State Park, Florida

When I was in San Diego, I was shooting the breeding Pelicans at La Jolla Cove with Robert Wilson, who is from Florida, and we were both under the impression that the Brown Pelicans there were considerably more colorful than the Brown Pelicans on the Florida coast. This photo of three coming up the coast at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park south of St Augustine, south of Marineland in fact, is evidence that our impression was perhaps not accurate. They might be a dad less vivid, but they are certainly colorful. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode with BIF modifications. 1/1000th @ f4 @ ISO 100. +1EV to keep detail in the silhouettes of the birds. Processed in Polarr.
