Gee fellows; good, bad, or indifferent??

I thought it was kind of a neat quick grab action shot of an uncommon species. Guess I was wrong.

To be honest, Steven, I missed it. Good thing you gave it a bump. Very interesting image. You're right. There isn't a lot of pelican stuff out there. I've seen these guys squabble over food when I lived in Charleston. They can get pretty vicious. At least it appears so. Well done!

Me too. I missed this one. I like it, but I have always been partial to Pelicans, white or brown. My son (who is 35 now) used to call them pterodactyls...

Hi Steven,

Sorry about the lack of responses. For me, it's been a busy week getting ready for the 4th and haven't had a lot of time to fully review the posts.

Actually, even though, I've seen loads of Pelicans over the years, when in the Florida Keys, I can't say that I've seen a lot of white Pelicans. This past winter we saw some in Marco.

Thanx for sharing.
Zig
