Nice series of photos. Love the Commentary too! I've never seen a White-faced Gray Heron. Very pretty. Hope you get closer to him!

Ken Schneider said...

Very cute! Now I feel so bad that I have thrown away so many good "butt shots."

Tail shots, a new angle on bird photography.

Andrew said...

A wonderful post Carole.. nothing like Pelicans on my patch...

Your birds are worthy of a book, Carole! On my list of birds is the Great Blue Heron, which we have here. They are so shy, though, and I have only two images---both taken with telephoto lenses zoomed to the max!

Nice set of shots - I have a good number of bird bum pictures! Well, I did until I pressed delete!

The crested pigeon in the last post is good - I could not believe them when I saw them first!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Love the huge backside of the pelican! Now that's a rump! Adore the commentary with this gorgeous series of photos!

diane b said...

Very clever captions and fabulous captures of these beautiful birds.

Larry said...

Great shots of the bird behinds Carole. I love the portrait of the Pelican as well and I didn't even know that there was a White-faced Heron! Cool!

Liz said...

Wonderful images, Carole!! I usually refer to the Pelican as a jumbo jet of the avian world... They really are quite graceful even with their sheer size!
Lovely capture of the White-faced Heron too!

Pam ;) said...

Great shots with a cute scenario Carole. This is the first White-faced Gray Heron I've seen.

grammie g said...

Hi Carole...First thank you so much for your comments on my posts!
Oh I love your pelican shot's.., and I can see a heart shape on it's backside : ) Maybe it would be more willing at that angle if it
knew that : )
Great great flight shots!!
Grace

Nice series and a different perspective!
They were likely just presenting you with their best side!
