Pelican "Painting"

Posted: 28 Jul 2014 06:00 PM PDT

The photo was taken on Elkhorn Slough, a seven-mile long estuary with its mouth in the middle of northern California's Monterey Bay coastline. The slough is habitat for over 300 bird species.

Brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) are a common sight along the CA coast.

I got the "painterly" look in this image by shooting with a hand-held camera, panning the 200mm lens to follow the bird's flight, and using a slow shutter speed.
