Departing

Busy week back at work - lots of catching up to do.

Rather like this image of pelicans departing into the distance.  Could not believe it when they organised themselves nicely in the frame.

Click went the shutter.




This was another shot I took while on a trip to Mud Islands, just off the coast from Queenscliff.

You can find more shots of the sky at Sky Watch Friday.

All the pelicans in my corner of the world are brown. I like seeing all the white on these that you photographed.

Laura said...

quite thoughtful of them to pose in motion for your Stewart.

You had some very cooperative subjects there! Nice shot!

How cooperative of them to save you cropping, etc. nice formation , I would never have guessed pelicans.
