Ran down to a secret hideaway in my area this evening to see if I could gain some more birding experience and I was lucky enough to be paired with a couple of very friendly Brown Pelicans!

Shot with 40D + 70-200 @ 200MM 1600ISO on a monopod
C&C is always welcome, thanks for looking!

Very nicely done. I especially like when you can see the whole reflection on several of them.

Hey, consider yourself "experienced"! If you are so inclined, might play around w/ cropping on that last shot to see if you can bring the birds into more prominence and still retain enough of the storm clouds. Just a thought.

I do agree with you on this shot and I did a little playing around.. without cropping to much in I came up with this. I think it is definitely better, what do you think?

Yes, I like it better. Probably as far as you dare go. I'll just say that a shot like that has so much potential w/ proper framing, cropping, exposure and recognition. That is what drives us to that next shot and critiquing the last. Go, Patrick!!
