Nice in-flight capture. I've always loved the pelicans. They're so goofy looking, I can't help but love 'em.

With a shot like this one can really see the similarities between birds and dinosaurs!

Fun to capture birds in flight, wonderful capture!

Wow, you got a great shot here!

Jarart said...

Fantastic! Very prehistoric looking fellow.

Kate said...

I wonder the length of their wingspan...looks pretty large! I never connected their bodies with dinosaurs...interesting observation. It's a clear photo of a strong bird!

I would love to get to Missouri next year to the migration. I didn't know about it in time for this year. Sounds like a road trip! You up for that?

That's a cool shot. I like the position you caught him in.

Thanks, Brian, for reminding me to link to Skywatch Friday. I'm such a slacker about doing this.

I think I "inherited" my love for pelicans from my mother. She would have enjoyed your photo very much. Makes me miss her, but makes me happy, too. Thanks.
