    Hey, I love it Gale. I'm not sure, but I usually take this to mean that the bird is almost at stall, and this raises the feathers on the wings, which I think looks cool.

  6. Pelicans are kind of gangley when in the air. Sort of like the spruce goose of Aviator fame. You have caught this one at the height of his landing pattern.

    Thank You gordon

    This was a fun time with the pelicans.. Need to go back and spend some more time with them.

    Need to spend more time with each bird. Marvelous to observe, and record them.

    Regards

    Whenever I see pelican shots I think of the Spruce Goose. They just don't look like they should be able to fly.

    Excellent captures, very cool.

    Thanks for sharing them with us and I hope you and everyone here has a great weekend too.

    Bye,

    Patrick,

    Kinda like a bumble bee, they shouldn't fly either.

    They soar beautifully though.

    Funny story. I work in a three story building. The pigeons like to gather up there by the dozen. There is a pelican that comes by, just dips his wing and knocks them all off. He still comes by looking for them. They don't get up there anymore.

    Amazing if you watch the behavior of the birds.

    To funny. Would have liked a pic of that. But even if I had the camera with me I would never had expected that.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Cheers
