Initially I thought this was one tame Pelican sitting next to the edge of a pond at Hermitage Park, and I was able to get close for a portrait shot without a problem. When this Pelican went back to the water, I realized it was injured one on the left leg/foot, which was not very mobile while it swam very slowly, and it preferred to be on land rather than in water. Even getting out of the water was difficult for this Pelican. I don't think it could even fly with the injured left leg/foot. I tried contacting Fish and Wildlife and it was nothing but runarounds, probably due to non-office hours. I ended up leaving a message with the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society. Hope this Pelican survives!

Hermitage Park, Edmonton, AB, Canada
June 25, 2011

Manual exposure, 1/1000 sec., f/5.6, ISO 1250 @ 400mm

The lighting was terrible, but better than blowing out the highlights of the bird. Shot in the same evening as the Immature Bald Eagles series posted yesterday.

Varadero, Matanzas, Cuba.

Caught this one flying overhead while lying on the hammock in one lazy afternoon. This is my second time seeing these birds flying overhead in Cuba. The image is somewhat a heavy crop @ 105mm; I only brought the 5D2 and the 24-105, and I usually don't shoot birds/wildlife while on vacation anyway.

Enjoy and have a great week!
