Stranger This great white pelican seemed like an impostor within the flock of dalmatian pelicans. He was quite brave though, he sneaked into the flock to grab that fish and then quickly out, before other even realised what happened! I like this photo for the documentary purposes too. The two dalmatian pelicans are blurred so the white pelican stands out, but at the same time one can see the difference in colourisation of the bills and feathers.

    1. I'm shocked. Just one hour ago I was on Youtube and the above video popped up. I figured it was recommended because I've viewed Z9 reviews before. I watched the video but didn't pay enough attention to realize it was you. Imagine my surprise seeing it pop up here!

      The video is wonderful and I'm quite impressed with the AF tracking in these challenging conditions. How do you like the Z9 overall?

      1. That's great to hear Ferdy! I like the camera a lot. For this Greece trip I borrowed it from Nikon Slovenia and I ended up purchasing it on return. Two big reasons - the AF obviously. This is the best AF performance Nikon has done so far. And the second reason is video. To have such high quality video internally is huge deal. The only downside is the size and weight - I would prefer a regular size body for my needs. Posted 8 months ago
