On our way back from the wharf we noticed this Pelican was standing perfectly still as if it had planned on modeling for me the entire time. It sat there for a long time while all the tourists, obviously including myself, snapped away. It actually let me get pretty close without being bothered. The D700 was able to get some great detail in the Pelican feathers. The one thing I did notice about the D700 though, is that the 70mm end of my 24-70mm lens is no longer "zoomy" enough for some things. I wanted to be able to zoom in even more when I took this photo (since I didn't want to get too close to the Pelican). This is a crop of the original framing.
