Pelican on the Wing

These birds are fun to watch, so very graceful and coordinated in flight. Like a highly choreographed dance in the sky over the crashing waves.

That is a cool shot! Looks like the coast is the place to be!!! Weird here, calm, warm, no wind and overcast.

Great shot, the waves are brilliant and you captured them perfectly, and the Pelican flight formation is perfect too the composition of this shot is spot on.

I have never seen a life wild pelican. Its not something we have around here where I live. I didn't know that they also flew in groups and in formation like that.

We have pelicans out here at Pyramid Lake, but I have never seen them fly in a row like that, what a beautiful picture!

Thanks! They are very cool flying up then diving in close over a big wave for the chance to have a bite. There is another here in black & white, perhaps the better of the two.
