Pelican (Pelecaniformes)

There are numerous sea birds to watch and photograph here on the coast of California.  Normally a zoom with auto focus and the servo mode would be the best choice.  However, considering the theme of this blog, a 5D Mark II and 200MM wouldn’t be appropriate.  So one has to be patient, zone focus, and be quick when using a 35MM manual lens to get birds in flight.  Occasionally it works out like this morning at Shell Beach.
