Thank you very much Bonnie Bruno for such a kind comment. I am very lucky and observant and i would not want to miss these beautiful birds. They are quiet and am glad my wife is with me at time to spot for me as this was the case with this one.

I saw my first flock of pelicans two years ago and will never forget how silently they fly overhead. I didn't even realize they were there; I was walking along the beach early morning, up near a sandy wall where shells had washed in during the night. A man and his little girl were waving their arms at me and I glanced up to see about thirty pelicans flying in perfect synch. Their wingspans were much bigger than I expected, but the silence was really something amazing. This is a rare opportunity you found, to photograph a single pelican in flight. Beautiful work, Thomas!
