This is one of the shots that I try to capture. A Pelican flock take off. Ideal would be a very near miss, right at me. It’s probably good that angle is rare. These are big birds and a miscalculation would really hurt.
An adult is 65 inches tall (165 cm), weights 317 oz (9000 g), and their wings are 114 inches (290cm). Like an airplane.
Being large it can take them a while to get in the air, some almost skip on the water.
