A pelican taking a bath is a noisy affair. Pier 19 in Galveston is a good place to watch the splashing spectacle of the brown pelicans cleaning their feathers.

For a clear shot, I try to keep the focus on the bird's eye with a medium aperture of f/10 to f/13, and a short exposure of about 1/800 in order to freeze the action.
