Shooting pelicans is fun … with a camera, but not easy to catch them in flight. Getting a good shot of them bobbing around in the water is fairly easy, but not near as rewarding.
I was in Marco Island the last week in February, on a commercial pier waiting for my dolphin cruise to start. The pelicans were plentiful — must be a lot of fish cleaning done there. Pelicans are a lot faster than they look; it took me a while to adjust my panning of the camera to match their speed. This is the best shot I got, not fabulous, but worth showing for my first attempt.
The dolphin cruise captain arrived before I was ready to quit, but will certainly try this again when I get the chance.
