Here are a couple more pictures that show how great the light was for short periods of time last Sunday at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. The Brown Pelicans are one of the many reasons why I like to go to this place.
These majestic birds are fun to watch. One minute they just swim slowly in the laguna and a moment later they go up in the air and dive furiously head first into the water. It is a breath taking spectacle when they perform their hunt for fish. I had the camera with the Sigma 50-500 on the gimbal head mounted to the tripod but that was not the best way to shoot them in flight. Handholding would have served me probably better.
