I spent Christmas in Ettalong, Central Coast, Australia. The family was chilling out the backyard when I saw pelicans flying by. They may look funny and joker-like on the ground but in the air they're quite graceful flyers. It took me a few shots to get these three decent ones though. Panning the shot was very important to get a sharp image. I only have a kit lens (18-55mm) on my camera and I was at it's long end to get these shots. The solo pelican is my favourite.
