Bird photography…with a speedlight

Photographers love to have the right tools for the job, and to put as many of them to use as possible to create a different photo!  I wanted to get a good shot of a pelican, since it’s the main feature of the St. Petersburg city logo.  But I didn’t want just any pelican photo.  I wanted to use a speedlight.  My partner, Daniela, held a speedlight angled towards the pelican on a monopod while I took the photos.  The birds were unabashed during the session; they were probably just mildly irritated by more paparazzi!
