Loafing Pelicans

Brown Pelicans are seen quite commonly flying low near the shore in Delaware. During a recent kayak trip in Rehoboth Bay I found this group where they loaf the day away.

Surfing Pelicans

I was in Wrightsville Beach, NC last week for my son’s wedding.  I did not have time to shoot any local wildlife except for these three pelicans that skimmed over the surf one cloudy morning.

Brown Pelicans

Pelicans are still a little bit of a novelty in Delaware.  Common thoughout the south and very tolerant of people, here they still attract stares as the glide by and are seldom seen up close. This morning a small group prepared for the day by loafing on a sand bar.
