That went from lovely, to funny, to lovely again. What a hoot! It was almost like a moving picture! :-)

And, Wow--those are amazing birds up close!

What a gorgeous bird! I love that bill. I've seen pelicans once and that was during a trip to Florida many years ago. Great photos, Carole!

Beautiful pictures Carole. We don't get to see pelicans around here so a treat for me. Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog too.

Oh and your photos inspired me to get out a couple of old pictures that I took of a pelican in California on a trip there. Perhaps you will see them one of these days. What amazing birds...

In the first photo, it looks as though he is wearing a top hat! And I love the partial reflection - is that the third photo? Yes, it is!!
