Pelican Portraits

Prehistoric, yet elegant in the air. Nobody can resist a Pelican.

All the photographs here were taken near commercial shrimp boats. It’s like a free lunch when the boats return from fishing.

These birds were more than happy to wait around, even with me staring at them with a camera.

    1. They fly in flocks when the fishing boats come back to shore, and White Pelicans can fly by in the hundreds during migration. Always beautiful.
