[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my Cuba vacation. I will post several photos to show these magnificent birds and their fishing behavior.

Unique among the world's seven species of pelicans, the Brown Pelican is found along the ocean shores and on only a few inland lakes in the southwestern U.S. It is the only dark pelican.
•Large, dark waterbird.
•Long bill with extensible pouch.
•Legs short.
•Body large and heavy.
•Feet webbed.
• Wings long and broad.
•Tail short.
•Soars close to water surface.

Very nice exposure the colors in the scene are very appealing. Nice detail throughout the entirety of the image. Well done!

amazing contrast, TFS Ori

Very nice photo.

Hi Peter,
This photo is really peaceful, I love the tone and the DOF. The bird itself is magnificent. Maybe the pelican is too centered but in my opinion, it doesn't penalize the composition.
Well done
Thnaks for sharing
