Pelican by jayshree Pelican by jayshree
OK, I know the horizon is off. I don't know how he's straight and the horizon is so off, but I don't question these things. I took it with my camera leaning over the edge of the rock/jetty - not looking at anything. Just pressing the button. :) Anyways, I had been stalking this pelican and it was getting ready to fly off so I was just taking pics like crazy. I was also not happy because I had realized by this point that i was using the wrong lens on my camera, but the bigger one was in the car - kind of far away so I did the best I could with what I had. Anyways, its weird and funky so I like it. Hope you do too.

I think that the angle of the horizon adds interest. It's a good twist =)

I liked it. Just cuz it was so close. I was literally standing on the edge of the jetty, holding my camera out. :lol: Thanks for :+fav:ing it.

It looked awesome taking off. I have the shot, but everything isn't in focus so its not going up. :( Thanks for :+fav:ing it.

I have many of those, out of focus ones, most of which sadly get trashed. These birds are so goofy looking on the ground, so majestic in flight.

Yeah, I know how that goes. I trash a bunch of stuff. :( I felt so bad for this bird. I was stalking the crap out of it.

Thier shy bird too. When I was trying to shoot GUs the pelican. He'd keep turning his head away from the camera. Like "Oh my, he's taking my picture, Oh my." Finally got em though.

He was probably waiting for some money. Bet he would have turned around if you would have flashed some cash.
