Brown Pelicans

Here is a small group of Brown Pelicans on a sand dune at J.N. Ding Darling NWR. They were fairly far out, but I liked the feather detail and textures plus their eyes seem to be looking at you. They were also positioned in an interesting group with the tallest bird on a small tree branch, almost giving a triangular composition of the birds . Canon EOS 1D MkIV, Sigma 300-800mm DG f/5.6 Zoom, @ 731mm, f/8,  1/500 sec, ISO 400. Effective focal length of 950mm with the 1.3 crop sensor of the Canon 1D MkIV.
