Really good shots Ray :) I would love to have some of these around here but all we have are the brown pelicans.

Fantastic control of those whites Ray. These birds were up here this winter but they really keep their distance. Nice shootin'!

Thank you Rubberhead Henry Sharon Sindri Steve Steve Wendy and Trevor. I've been trying center-weight average on my white colored birds lately. Zooming in on the white and locking the exposure and it really has helped with the details in the whites. If you folks have any other ideas for me feel free to share :)
