Brown Pelican Gliding Over Creek

Gliding Brown Pelican

These images combine a few of my favorite photography opportunities: Brown Pelicans, Reflections, and Birds in Flight.

The colored reflections in the water come from piers and docked boats on the other side of the creek.

  1. I love shots like this, is it not just amazing that they can fly so close to the water just touching it with the tips of their wings. And here I have watched them glide so fast doing that over the river. I went down to the river the other day, and there were only a couple of white pelicans left. I believe they have moved on all ready. There were not as many as years past. Maybe next year again. Great photo Ellen. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sandra, me too! The Pelican’s flight skills are amazing, and seem so effortless. We get some of the white ones over the winter out in the wildlife management areas and I look forward to seeing them.
