I photographed this American White Pelican at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma (5-16-2019).
How I Got The Shot – American White Pelican
At the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, I pulled into the Sand Town parking area and spotted this Pelican walking on the fishing pier. I positioned my pickup so that I could photograph it. When the bird saw me it walked off of the pier and onto the grass near the water. I was extremely close and was able to get several profile photos.
I had my Fujifilm X-T3 camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/4700 of a second at f8 and the ISO at 800. White Balance was set on auto.
