Just Above The Waves

_IGP0683

I love watching pelicans glide effortlessly over the ocean.  They hang in the air, sometimes just inches off the water, bobbing up and down with the passing waves.

Two Brown Pelicans patrolled the waters off the Gulf Coast of Florida.  One of them decided its next meal was waiting below.

Landing Pelican

I tracked this Brown Pelican in my camera as it came soaring in from the Gulf Of Mexico.  As luck would have it the pelican decided to land on the beach just in front of me.  There’s no substitute for being in the right place at the right time.

Anticipating Pelican

This Brown Pelican seems to know sometimes a little patience pays off.  It stood there for a while, quietly waiting to see if the fisherman had any handouts.  Unfortunately it never got that meal.  Two other fisherman arrived and the pelican decided it was time to move along.


Brown Pelican On Rocks

I saw this Brown Pelican standing on some rocks by the shore while I was visiting Bonita Springs, Florida.  The pelican practically posed as I approached with my camera.

Brown Pelicans are a little funny looking but when I’m at the beach I love watching them soar along in the wind.  They frequently glide along, just above the waves, in small groups and seem to have perfected the art of efficient flight.
