Raven On the Mountain - Video from the 2015 Space Coast Birding Festival

Shooting video in the early morning lets you play with several kinds of light over a short period. The warm flush that turns white birds pink. The irresistible backlit glow that passes through feathers and skin. The sparkle that happens to water at this time of day and near sunset. The weeds at the water's edge prevented low angle shots of the (very close) avocets, but several different light effects were offered as the pelicans swam toward the sun.
