Pelicans

Not much happening out on the Bay today,but noticed some Pelicans soaring in towards a fishing boat.
Love to watch them soar just above the water ,using the "ground affect" (Is that the correct term seeing its on water? )
They were hoping for a free meal when the boats empty their bait tanks before docking and provided a good chance to get some close shots.
Hope you like,
cheers Dal

The feather detail is impressive. Any Photoshop sharpening? Unsharp Mask to sharpen yields impressive results.

Pop,
shame you didn't let me know! I would have loved to take you for a zip around. Glad you enjoyed your visit.
These were taken just of Shelter Island, the next one up to Harbour island.
Rogan; spot on. As the Canon I use softens the image, I nearly always use unsharp mask to bring out the detail.You can't really get the full impression on these reduced web images,but full size, it really makes them clear.
cheers dal
