ABC Wednesdays - P for Pelican

Late this afternoon I changed my mind on my P post. I headed to North Glenelg to the Patawalonga where I was certain to get some photos of pelicans; they are always there.

Perched on the weir; waiting and watching.

Feed time! Even though the water didn't look overly clean, these birds certainly seemed to be finding plenty to eat.

These are great shots. I thought of pelicans, too. We have brown pelicans, here, but they were camera shy.

Great shots! We only see Pelicans passing through with the change of seasons and I never get a chance to get such great pictures...thanks for sharing!

Great "P" post.
The first Pelican photo is stunning.
Sharp, great reflection, smooth water, terrific color and contrast.

Well done.

Come visit,
