20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pelican in flight (2)

Pelican in flight (2): I arrived at the Huntington Beach, Bolsa Chica Wetlands and set up camera and tri-pod (Sony A7r3 w/200-600mm G lens) hoping to get a photograph of a pelican. After, approximately waiting 10 minutes, I was lucky that this pelican just showed up and I was fortunate enough to capture this pelican in flight as he/she was scanning the wetlands for food.
