Hello,
Sorry! More pelican shots, but they will only be around for another few weeks......
By spending some time watching them behave, we sometime actually see them fishing successfully.
Here is one with a mouth full (quite a big fish):

Nice work Gilles! I never realized they had an opening in the top bill.
Helle Gene,
Thank you for your comment.
The lower part of the bill is very flexible. The openning you see is actually part of the bottom part. It looks just like one of those fancy hand fisherman nets.
Best regards.

Excellent capture Gilles, well done.
Hi Louis,
Thank you. Much appreciated.

wow Gilles, very cool shots.. where were these taken?
Hi Raymond,
Thanks.
These were taken right in Calgary. Another month or so and they will be gone. After that, will have to go to some of the lakes in southern Alberta to be able to catch them. Also it will be very hard to get close-ups.
Best.

amazing!!! the pelicans will be here in September and I can't wait!!
Hello,
Thank you for taking the time to comment. I hope you will have as much fun as I do photographying them.
Good luck.
Best regards
