Miscellaneous Pelicans

If you read this blog regularly you are probably saying, ok enough with the pelicans already! Well as you know I like these birds but I promise that these are the last for a while. I have been going through my images getting ready to clear the decks for our fall trip to Europe. I found these two images and thought they were too good to keep to myself. They were taken during February 2016 in Madeira Beach Florida at John’s Pass.

Portrait of a Pelican

If you read my blog you know that one of favorite subjects is the pelican. The Florida Brown Pelican has a wingspan of up to nine feet and weighs 30 pounds. The white pelican is even larger and the second biggest bird in North America after the California Condor. They are actually bigger than the Bald Eagle and much more plentiful. I love these birds because in flight they look a little like Pterodactyls as they glide through the air. This one was actually nice enough to sit for a portrait.
