White Pelican - Gilbert, Arizona
D500, 500mm + 1.4x, ISO 400, f/11, 1/1000s


In 18 years of conducting the DuckShop photo workshops in Arizona's Valley of the Sun, we have only had White Pelicans in a photographable position one other time.  This year a good size flock posed and preened for us :)

EJ, a great preening pose and a wonderful reflection. The lighting and calm water are ideal for this shot. Excellent.

Took me a while to see which way was up. :). Amazing how birds can do bird yoga to get at those preening places. Very cool photo.
