I took this March 2010 With John's Kodak Z612 on a visit to my family in Cocoa Beach, FL. It was cropped in Picnik today 06-01-11

What would our oceans be....
without fish and plant life,
it's penguins and dolphins;
or the pelicans flying free?
~~~
 Like a swamp without our gator
a pond without our duck,
or a cave without our caveman...
JUST NOT RIGHT!   :-)

  4. What a nice Pelican shot! For birds that look like they should be dorks (!), they can be so graceful. This one is definitely in the graceful phase!

  11. very nice. I had a pelican shot, but chose not to use it since mine was blurry. Yours is impressively clearer. I like these big birds.
