  4. Love these. The gray weather really brings out their color. Btw: a pelican is subject matter on one of my panels.

  10. Positively perfect. Amazing that it would take time out of its busy schedule to pose for the camera. I suppose that birds can be vain too. And that's a bit of good luck for us.

  11. L, Great shots! Pelicans are amazing creatures. There are 8 species of pelicans in the world. They inhabit every continent except Antarctica. They’re not only gigantic birds, some with wingspans as large as 10 feet, they can, using thermals, soar up to heights of 10,000 feet.
