Wonderful pictures, I love the bird who different and has his feet down, a beautiful rebel.

In NC we call these "the shore patrol". Love their flight patterns.

I've recently learned so much about the Brown Pelican. More than I ever wanted to know from helping my son with a school project. I even painted a huge Brown Pelican for his project. You can see it here: http://stephanieestrin.blogspot.com/2011/04/brown-pelican.html

Love your photos!

They are so beautiful, thank you! Here I can only see them in the zoo.

Janine said...

You have some wonderful shots here, thanks for sharing! BTW, I enjoyed your online class!

Thank you, I *love* brown pelicans. We don't get them here.

But I think you missed the 'straight down' flight pattern :-)

I would never have seen these birds in my neighborhood...they are quite lovely in their air dance...grace in flight. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Pretty! I love all of the lines and patterns that the birds make. Oh, all the art-making possibilities with these! :):):)

I was at the beach in NC this last weekend and saw several of these pelicans. I love their grace, fluidity of motion and could watch them all day. Sometimes they come in so low to the water it is amazing they do not hit the water with their belly.

This made my day! I've only been to Key West twice in my life but one of my favorite things to do was to have lunch on a pier somewhere and watch the Pelicans. I love those birds:) Have a wonderful week.

gorgeous shots... we loved seeing these on tybee island last summer, we're moving there in a few years. xo

We had (recently passed) a German Shepard (Hank) and EVERY time we saw a pelican...we thought of Hank. We would point and say, "Hank!"

I love your blog. I check it daily. Thank you for the inspiration and sharing your talent.

I love how the one pelican seems to be "hugging the sky" :)

beautiful photos as usual.
