Pelican Flight 321 Taking Off

Nikon D90, Nikon 18-300mm lens at 220mm, f/5.6, 1/1000sec, ISO 200
Lately I've been trying to take some photos of birds flying.

This pelican was taking off in the waters of the Eau Gallie River at Ballard Park, in Melbourne, Florida.

Most of my action shots of birds fail dismally, but I quite like this one.

I like how they use their feet to push off of the water six or eight times before finally getting airborne.

The water behind them looks as if someone skipped a stone.
