Okay Pat, just how tall are you ?? You must have been up very high to get this shot.. I usually
get the underbelly as they fly over...

I love "birds in flight" photos! When we were down in Florida in Dec. I took a bunch of the pelicans. We will be returning there in April, and I can't wait to take more bird photos there.
Great shot!

faye - I was standing on the edge of a cliff. It's a great spot.

Joan - I love them also. The picture was taken just north of Pismo Beach in California.

thanks for commenting!

Pat--

I relive this poem from my Grandfather every time I see a Pelican.

I always thought it was sooo neat because it had almost a dirty word in it:

A wonderful bird is the Pelcan,
His beak can hold more than his belly can,
He can hold in his beak,
enough food for a week,
and I don't see how in the Hellican!

Grandfathers are so cool! And so are your Pics!

John

Like Faye, my first thought is 'How tall you? Where are you?"
Super neat shot!

I was standing on the edge of a cliff near Pismo Beach.

Great shots, Pat. It reminds me of a lot of beautiful coastal sites we get to enjoy in California. Thanks.
