I am in Mexico where the Pelicans fly about by the hundreds! I hope you like this image. They are a fun bird to photograph!

Hi Elton,
And they're huge too!
I like the inflight pose caught here, with the extended wings and showing us all its feathers...
So good the curved feathers at the extremes, like in today's modern aircrafts.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

  • Great
