On trips to Florida I used to love watching these guys as they skimmed just a few feet above the water.

Poor old pelican, he is losing his feathers...

Pelicans aren't the handsomest birds on the planet but when they are flying they are certainly a graceful looking group. This sis a lovely portrait of this one.

Interesting ol Pelican----I won't bore you with the Pelican poem I say everytime you post this bird pic.

He looks peaceful!

I like the light on the water as well as the bird--always fun to watch them.

Ah the stories he could tell, if he could!

He looks tired.

Great catch! And his beak can hold more than his belly can. (Someone's got to fill Mary Beth's void!)
