I always get the feeling that pelicans really enjoy flying. They glide along with that self-satisfied expression. It is a really nice shot Art. Center weighted metering seemed to do the trick. Nice color and sharpness.

Hello Art, superb shot of the pelican. Colours are stunning against such a rich sky...wing details and shapes are spot on, a very good composition.

A wonderful shot of the Pelican in-flight.Quite sunny and nicely composed.
Very impressive wingspan and i see it is almost a full frame shot.The blue sky BG makes a fine contrast against the white bird.And i positively see a catchlight in the eye seen from thei PoV. The bird must have been flying quite directly above you when you managed this shot.
Despite the central composition being too common, this one looks beautiful especially with the big wingspan the bird exhibits.
Good colours and contrasts too.
TFS & Cheers

Hi Art - Just came across this. Excellent shot. Brilliant colours and it fills the frame nicely. I've had a go at these (in Manitoba) and other pelicans - Australia. Looking forward to viewing your other pictures soon,
