Pelican Wings

 

Australian pelicans are truly magnificent birds with an incredible wingspan! On land they waddle awkwardly but in flight they are infinitely graceful. In this shot, I love the way the soft morning sunlight brings out the delicate pink of his bill and catches the spray of the water as he lands.

  2. Thank you, Chris. They are amazing to watch, landing like huge jumbo jets on the water.
