These photographs were taken one morning at Bear Island, a South Carolina wildlife management area.
A few decent sized flocks were moving through the old rice fields for their morning feeding.
Overgrown trails run along dikes separating the marshes. As long as we were not too obvious the Pelicans drifted close as they moved back and forth.
The water was pretty clear that morning too making the images look a lot better than some others I have taken here. This place can be really muddy.
