another in my sea creatures set that i am working on. taken with my new 85-210mm tele (that i got at the flea market for $21, yes we are still bragging about that) i love this tele, it's hefty enough that it doesnt feel like a toy, fairly easy to use, super easy to focus, and the clarity on it can't be beat. this is as close up as i have gotten a shot on a pelican and i was further away than usual as it flew by. pelicans are totally the bomber planes of sea birds. they like to glide over the bay, wingtips at about 5inches above the water level. my next project i think, will be to stalk the hawks and peregrines around our mountain, they are considerably harder to shoot however, what with all the trees in the way.

in other news, i am going to have a cookie making party on dec 13th in the afternoon at our place. i will be posting another post shortly detailing how Yura's mom made us Oreshki, tiny filled ukrainian cookies that look like little nuts. we are going to get the oreshnitsa (the special pan you use to make them) and make several kinds of international cookies for our xmas boxes this year. let me know if you are interested in coming!
