Species: American White Pelicans | Location: Tennessee River/ Hiwassee River, United States
This photo was taken after a very large group of American white pelicans (over 200) rested on a small inlet on the Hiwassee River in Decatur, Tennessee. I got out on the boat and waited until it was somewhat calm and the sun went down. During the sunset the small grouping to the left were watching us watching them without the water being disturbed. I LOVE this shot, not only for the light, but the opportunity since these pelicans are not seen very often in Tennessee.
About The Photographer
I moved to a rural part of Tennessee on the banks of the Hiwassee River. I have always been the photographer in the family but really got interested in wildlife here in Tennessee. Usually I am out on our boat or on the banks of the Tennessee River or Hiwassee Island watching and observing bald eagles and juveniles. I go out at least 4 days a week (weather permitting) to photograph any kind of wildlife (and even people sometimes). I now have a 600 mm lens and a Canon 6D Mark II camera that I love. By request I have sold and gifted enough prints to support my photography habit. I love my life and my camera (in that order)!
