Deirdre, I envy you - I love pelicans and that scene is somewhere I'd love to be right about now. Ah....warmth, sun, sand, water... Wonderful how you've caught him gliding there!
Traam, yours is quite striking in its simplicity and beauty.

Thanks Wylie. I don't know how you guys/gals do it with the compact. I couldn't get the LX5 autofocus to focus fast enough for birds, nor could I get the camera to focus specifically on the tiny faraway birds sometimes, I really really wanted manual focus on the lens in these circumstances. Actually I just remembered I did successfully catch a couple of photos of birds on one other occasion, I'll see if I can post them here.

I struggled to get these, there were many shots that didn't work. These were the only two that I was happy with in the end.

Just spent yesterday evening at Matador State Beach north of Malibu, with interesting but mixed results.

Thank you tann and Mayank for continuing to add your birds! What I think surprises me is that so many of the pictures here aren't the typical, and I'm not using this word as a pejorative, bird photographs. As I said, I don't mean "typical" in the negative sense. I would love to have the camera and lens and patience to take those amazing close ups that some are capable of and able to do! On the other hand, I enjoy the impressions of birds that each who has added to this thread has given me very much and, dare I say it, even more.
