People often ask me if I have a favorite place to shoot.

The answer is no, I don’t. However, I do have a photography “wish list” or “bucket list” both for locations and wildlife to photograph.

So what’s at the top of my locations list? Iceland. How about for wildlife? Believe it or not, Pelicans are near the top.

Yes, that’s right. Not bears, not moose, not a jackelope. Pelicans.

I’m not even sure why. I’ve just always had a fascination with them. They are so much bigger than you’d expect them to be, and just as ungraceful. And they are so shy. I’ve come so close to being able to photograph them, and I’ve never been able to click the shutter – they fly away. Even at a great distance. Maybe that’s part of it; I’ve never gotten close enough to justify a shot.

So today, as they circled the farm, I thought why not. So here, ladies and gentlemen, is my Pelican image. 😉
