I went out this morning for sunrise images, but it was a clear sky with very little color for it. I ended up making my way to Knutson Dam on Cass Lake. When I pulled into the parking lot, I could see the Pelicans had returned, by the dozens. Unfortunately, on my first trip out, the longest lens I had with me was 200mm. I was able to slowly approach the flock and make a number of images. The first 2 below are from that trip. Later in the day, Val and I took Cleo out as well and I took the longer lens this time, taking the remaining images below.
Exposure was 1/1600, f/5.6 @ ISO800
These 2 were jostling over the rock they were standing on. They fenced with their beaks for a few minutes before the one on the left surrendered the position.
Exposure was 1/1250, f/8.0 @ ISO400
Exposure was 1/2500, f/8.0 @ ISO400
Exposure was 1/2000, f/8.0 @ ISO400
