Terrific close-up with rippled water and feathered details.

All the details and the very stance of the bird are so beautiful.

As you may remember, I LOVE pelicans, and this image is just beautiful!

Sorry I haven't been around regularly - I haven't figured out my crazy schedule yet.

pretty angle.

These are one of my favorite birds. The American white pelican I believe is the largest bird in our hemisphere. Great shot.

Wonderful shot of a beautiful bird! I like the look of its wing. Very nicely done!

Lowell said...

As the British might say, "Beastly good photo!" Would they call this a byrd or a bird? How'd you get it to open its wings a bit?

Just wondering ... do you only have pelicans in the zoo rather then in the wild?
