First article in a series of Brown Pelicans in flight.
Not the largest Pelican, yet at 5 feet (1.5 meters) and a wind span of 7.7 feet (2.28 meters) it is a large bird.
Both the Pelican and I were low on the water for this fly by.
Taken off the coast of South Carolina.

Great capture of a magnificent bird. As I walk the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, I love to watch the Brown pelicans fly, and dive… We have no Pelicans on the shores of Vancouver Island in Canada so I need to get my fill while vacationing.
Sweet, awesome photos, don’t there eyes look like they are looking right at you, I have taken shots of them over my head, and when you look at the photo, there eye is like following you. The definition on the wings is just gorgeous.
Impressive composition and technical execution!
What an excellent shot!
