Description:

On a recent trip to Greece to photograph the Dalmatian Pelican I was able to field test the Sigma APO 50-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens. This was my first time using this lens and the ability to go from distant images of pelicans in flight to tight portraits like this with a twist of the wrist was nothing short of amazing! What looks like a bad hair day is actually just fine feathers drying into a cool looking hair like wave. The attractive red bill pouch is caused by hormonal changes during their breeding season.
