Mr Pelican Finds a Free Lunch

We have been traveling the last week and spent 5 days at the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in Sanibel, Florida. Got lots of great photos and have a lot to edit through. Here is a Brown Pelican that came upon a fish laying on the ground and could not let it go to waste. See the animated gif below, the last image. I was hand holding the camera for this sequence so it jumps a little bit. Canon EOS 1D MkIV with a Canon 400mm f/4 DO lens with a Canon Series III 1.4X Teleconverter,  1/640 sec, f/11, @ ISO 1250. Effective focal length of 728mm with the 1.4X Teleconverter and the 1.3 crop sensor of the MkIV.
