Pic of the Day

American White Pelican,  Pelecanus erythrorhynchos:  Viera Wetlands; Viera, Florida
     After my Ivory-bill reunion with Tim Gallagher at Bayou Deview in Arkansas, at the end of February, I headed south to Florida.  My first stop was the Viera Wetlands.  About 50 to 60 American White Pelicans were at the wetlands when I arrived.  I spent two mornings photographing the pelicans as they flew to and from various water impoundments.  I shot this image as the pelican was flying to a water impoundment to join a flock of feeding birds.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500 f4, Exposure 1/3200 second @ f6.3
