  1. Not that I’m necessarily a pelican fan, but I do love these, especially the pelican that is about to land with wings and feet spread in anticipation.

    • I used to think that pelicans were a little scary-looking—as many readers have remarked, like dinosaurs sizing you up for a meal—but now that I look at these photos again, they look almost friendly :-)

      Thanks, Peet!!

  4. I love Pelicans. I am from St. Petersburg…used to feed Pelicans at the old Pier, and of course see them all around the Bay while water skiing. When I was a kid they had a over-40 baseball league in Florida and St.Pete’s name was the Pelicans.

  5. Pelicans always make me laugh. They are so klutzy until they get into the air and then they are masters of the wind. And the fish.

  7. What a wonderful arrangement of pelicans. Very thoughtful of them to line up for you :-)
    It’s almost like a shop display.

  8. What fantastic photos! Pelicans 8 has a fine art feel and reminded me straight away of images of pelicans sculpted by unnamed medieval stone masons found in churches. We have some examples here in East Anglia, UK.
    On a more prosaic note could I ask what type of lens you used?
