Wonderful action capture! The blurred waterfall action in the background really ties the whole thing together!

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Scott.

Heather Mellon

Awesome flight capture Debra. The churning background waters and mist complement the beauty of the pelican very nicely here.. your focus and timing were spot on. Beautiful image!

Debra Plett

Thanks a lot Heather. I enjoy visiting the dam in the summertime. You can always count on the pelicans fishing and flying. There is quite a few catfish in this area. Just down river from here the floodway meets back up with the Red River. Lots going on here.

Yves Langlois

You took a terrific pose of that gliding pelican Debra. I like those black feathers going straight down and the calm state of the neck and body. Not to talk about the nice rushing waters of the background witch is a great add on.

Debra Plett

Thank Yves, this is a great location to go and practice those birds in flight shots. I tried to get a shot of a pelican swallowing a fish but have not been successful yet.

Jane LeBlanc

I agree with Clifford. Great shot, Debra!

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Jane, appreciate your support.

Clifford Dupuis

wow.. this is beautiful great composition, colour, and detail in this action shot.

Debra Plett

Thank you Clifford, this is a great place to visit in the summer to practice birds in flight shots. I usually try to visit the dam a few times throughout the summer.
