Pelicans and Landscapes

at Roosevelt Lake

Uploaded 2/6/05

 Here are some images from our first photo expedition of the year, at Roosevelt Lake about an hour south east of Payson. Two lenses were used, our new 17-40mm L lens for the wide angle work, and the 400mm lens for telephoto. The surprise on this trip was to find two Great American White Pelicans along the shore. They are huge compared to the thanksgiving sized Canadian geese they were with. The only larger birds we have ever seen in Arizona are bald Eagles and California Condors.
