Week 3 – Feathers

_NIK0051-Edit-Edit

Brown Pelican, Anna Maria Pier.

One of my favorite birds is the Pelican with their spectacular dives, bill first, into the water.  Or when they are gliding just above the water with the occasional wingbeat that may briefly touch the sea.  Awkward in their take offs and landings, they provide me great entertainment in the water, in or out, such as this fellow as he cleans and straightens up his feathers preparing to rest.

    This photo makes me wish I was there. I too find the pelicans fascinating and could watch them forever. Wish we had them in the frozen north.

    Keep shooting.
