American White Pelican With Minnow

By | December 16, 2019

I photographed this American White Pelican With a Minnow at the Robert S. Kerr Reservoir (Kerr Dam) in Oklahoma (December 2013). I like to go to this place during the winter because lots of Pelicans and Gulls are feeding here. You do need to dress warm because it gets cold with the wind blowing over the water.

How I Got The Shot – American White Pelican With Minnow

I was sitting in the rocks near the Dam hand holding a Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with the Canon EF 100 – 400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached.
