Take-off by girlie

Take-off

I went to Hat Head this morning and found a mob of pelicans hanging around the fish-cleaning table. Unlike the pelicans at Port Macquarie recently, they took off when I walked near but I was able to get in a few good action shots like this one.
Great capture. Quite a wing span.

What a magnificent bird, he looks just gigantic in this shot with the smaller gulls below.

Super feathers and wing spread! Nice PoV Robin! :-)

This is extraordinary. What a perfect angle
July 6th, 2012  
Brilliant shot. I'm so jealous that you can pop down and see pelicans whenever you want! We only see the odd one or two soar over every now and then.

Oh, wow!!! FAV

Fantastic shot - I love those wings. We don't have pelicans here.

Wonderful shot Robin. I have tried to capture a bird in flight, much harder than it looks.

Lovely - they are huge when seen close up!

What a shot. That bird looks prehistoric! Such a wingspan!
July 7th, 2012  
fabulous action capture! What a beauty

The perspective is cool! He is flying, way up above the other birds (gulls?) right? He dwarfs them so I thought they were babies at first. Very cool!
July 7th, 2012  
@espyetta Thanks, Mary Beth. Yes, he's taking off from a grassy knoll high above the creek where the gulls are floating.
July 7th, 2012  
Awesome perspective
July 7th, 2012  
Lovely action shot, Robin; looks as if you were flying in formation with the pelican.
July 7th, 2012  
Oh, this is great! Pelicans look so gangly during take off and landing. But they certainly have formation flying down pat.
July 7th, 2012  
Precious sight.
July 7th, 2012  
What an extraordinary shot ! Hat Head is on my bucket list !
