    @rmacprivate – Pelicans make all kinds of crazy sounds, some of which you’’ll recognize if you’ve spent time at the coast:

    Ben is correct they do make different sounds. The caw is an alarm sound they make when startled. Alerts the flock to something going on.

    Easy eye flow. Scrolling down here kind of reminds me of the oriental watercolors , they’re long and thin and meant to be viewed a section at a time before considering the whole.
    .
    I missed the camouflage the 1st glance down. Tanks don’t go where cat tails grow.

    Also liked the depth of field with the hi-detail bird close, loose detail ship midrange, and silhouette far range.

    Don’t mess with pelicans. A friend of mine had his Dad out on his speed boat (for the first time), and spooked a floating pelican which proceeded to take off, hover just over his boat and …uh…unload all over my friend and his dad. Apparently they can carry quite a load.
    When I saw my friend after he said, “I learned a valuable lesson today, never (mess) with a pelican.”

    Cause a disturbance to attract the attention of the guard as they come closer.

    That last panel turning red like an alarm going off added impact to the action.

    @Veteran

    @ True… although I may eventually switch it to some other sound effect that’s not so closely associated with crows.

    @jocatric

    @ I’ve only heard them make pretty standard bird sounds myself, but I was on the NC coast this week and was really temped to harass passing pelicans to see if I could get some more dramatic sound effects out of them!
