Oh how wonderful. I remember pelicans when I lived in Cairns in Queensland. Such wonderful birds. I love the way they tuck themselves up like that when in flight. Superb photo. Happy New Year to you, Tash - may all your dreams come true.

Happy New Year Tash. Know I've been awol from my blog for a while now but had one of the nicest and longest visits with my youngest daughter ... what a joy. :)

This is a really amazing action shot. Capturing birds in flight is very tricky and you did a wonderful job of it.

What the??? Pelicans straight and level at eye level? No way. Way! Very, very nice choice.
