  1. I do love pelicans. And don't see anything like enough of them. Thank you.

  2. We have pelicans here, too, but I've never gotten as close as you did with this photo. I was amused by the bird who is faced the "wrong" direction. I guess he didn't get the memo.

  3. I love when you share things like this as pelicans are not something we see on the prairie.

    I like the lighting you captured. It almost looks like the pelicans are highlighted with sunbeams.

    You will have to check my blog next week to see what J and I saw while moving cattle last Wednesday.

    1. Thank you Robyn. That beautiful light can be so fleeting. I was watching the pelicans, and watching the ray of sunlight poking out through the heavy cloud moving across the paddock, willing it not to disappear before getting to the pelicans. Lucky for me I got the moment of beautiful light before it disappeared altogether. A lot of luck is involved in my photos each day!

      Looking forward to seeing your blog... you have my very intrigued.

  4. Pelicans are my favourite bird. Gorgeous light. I see you are irrigating even with rain.

    1. No not irrigating now. The irrigation is finished for the season, so the lateral irrigator at the back of this photo is just parked for the winter.

  5. This sight is more fun than we have - here (in Finland) gulls and crows come to the fields.
    Really lovely image.

  8. How cool! I love Pelicans we have some that visit every year in our area. They are white with bright yellow beaks. I like the black coloring on these pelicans. You can visit 2014's visit here if you'd like.

    1. The pelicans only come here at this time of year when the irrigation channels are being emptied and the invasive carp are plentiful in the small, shallow stream.

  9. I see one insists on looking in the opposite direction. There's one in every crowd. But he's my kinda guy. Another fantastic composition, Lynda.

  11. Sounds like the Pelicans come to do a good job if the eat the invasive carp. Love this shot, you got the lighting just perfect. Well done Diane.
