I probably have gathered 10k+ Pelican images over the years, but I still get excited when I see these guys for the 1st time during any given season.

They have been "wintering" in North TX as long as I can recall. A few years back, I captured a image with a clear wing tag and discovered that many of these guys are from Utah.

They are like B-52's & are beautiful.

Very nice set PhilM_TX.
Lots of details in plumage in white area.
Well done. 🦢
Thank you Bob. As always, much appreciated. :) These guys make it easy on the photog.

Well done Phil, you got some beautiful images here.
Thanks Louis. As I mentioned initially, I just get really excited to see these guys return each year. The 1st sighting makes me feel young again. Lol...

You did them justice, Phil. Really a nice set both compositions and techs. Nicely done.
Thank you Dan. That is quite kind and appreciated.

Well done.
Thanks Nick. I bet you have some of these guys during the summer months...???...

Well done. You certainly frabbed alot of detail in the whitish areas. Two is my favorite but all are nice.
Garcias, Sir. These guys really do make it easy. It's more them than me.

Beautiful! Great job exposing for the white feather detail.
Appreciate it Mike! :)

Wonderful set of images, Phil! #2 and 4 are especially nice! Glad you have something to photograph!
Thank you Karen.
It was just about perfect timing. Our Hummers seem to be gone, so now the big birds are back.

They will provide options throughout he winter, as they are quite routine and predictable in their activities.
