  6. I think these birds are just the right size. Trying for pelicans either would have overwhelmed the waves or would have changed the perspective. You got the exposure dead on - good detail in the birds and the waves are not blown out.

    Next time you are shooting neat LAX, see if you can get one of the nut job flying the jetpack in in controlled airspace. :) That would be different - although probably not appropriate for this forum. :D

    Only if you have more pelicans in your picture than mine. :cool:
    Just kidding.

    A few years ago, once I saw about 200 white pelicans together. That is probably the most I have seen at one location. What was strange was that when I arrived, there was none, but suddenly they started arriving one after another. After like an hour, I think there were more than 200.
