    Nice set, Joe. I particularly like #2 & #3. The second because it shows the bird's typical graceful flight which always seems to effortless. Then the third because it shows the actual effort it puts into using those huge wings to stay aloft.

    Hi, Joe. Nice shots. Very well processed, as usual. #1 and 5 are my preferred ones. On #1, I think I would let a bit more sky space below the bird, instead of above it, but that's just personnal preference.

    Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

    Thanks for sharing these great action shots Joe. I seldom get to see a pelican and had no idea that there was a white and brown variety. It makes you wonder how these guys can fly so gracefully with such large heads! Number 2 of the brown pelican really does remind me of a dinosaur somehow???

    My apologies to all who commented for my being late in responding. I was very busy last week with scheduled appointments and other life circumstances. So to Greg, Bobo, Otavio9, Christina, Suzan, and Pinaki thank you for your comments, I truly appreciate them.
