that's incredible

My faves! So good to see them in flight. California's pelicans are safe, but I've seen so many horrific shots of suffering pelicans along the oil spoiled Gulf Coast I can't cry anymore. The blue sky looks so hopeful.

I love to watch the pelicans flying in formation along the beach from our condo in Costa RIca. You have captured them very well, closer than the photos of pelicans that I have taken and posted.

Absolutely gorgeous shot Tash! It's so nice to see a picture of pelicans that are not threatened by oil.

Excellent photo! And I like the wing configuration, tip sloping down and feathers spread out.

Oh Tash,
I am giving you a standing ovation for this one. Tuck it away in your portfolio, ok? :)

Judy said...

Oh! My! What a gorgeous photo! Do the pelicans really fly in formation like that?

Arija said...

Beautiful, all flying in formation.

Three china ducks on a wall are a classic of the British 1950's home. How wonderful to see this Californian take on that theme!

If there were not a few differences one could think you played with Photoshop!! (I know you didn't)
