    When only a DSLR with a long lens will do. Hand held and shaky.

    Love that golden outline from the morning sun; a nice, calming image.

    Thank you :) And wasn't he agreeable, just standing still for me. I took quite a few of him, and he posed this way and that, but this one was my favourite.

    Sue - that is a beautiful picture! I love pelicans! Really wonderful - and I don't sense any shakiness at all. Well done and good for you for being there this morning/:drinks:

    Thanks, BB. Really should have got the tripod out, but I was on a narrow path and would have been obstructing walkers. I think had I gone down the stair to the beach, Mr. Pelly would have left.

    Thnaks, Lili and Bill. I dunno, I keep wanting to sell the DSLR and then, I get shots like this. Perhaps its OK to have multiple cameras for different reasons. Even when you are as poor as a churchmouse :)
