Pelican - Almost Silent Sunday













'Such pretty eyes!


These photos were snapped near Fort Morgan, Alabama in February while we were on vacation.  Can you tell I was pressing the button as fast as could?  ;-)  Since we live in Arkansas, I really don't know much about pelicans.  They are fun to watch as they dive into the water.  If you are knowledgeable about pelicans, I'd love to learn more about them!

There are more wildlife photos on my GARDEN PAGE.  Take a look!

  1. You were very quick on the shutter! Great captures, I love pelicans and could watch them all day, sadly they are not native to Normandy, France but whenever we're in Hilton Head I can see them everyday.
    Have a great week.

  2. You know that I am in awe of your photography skills Marci! Taking something like this is so hard with a moving object. The Pelicans certainly gave you a show.

  3. Aren't they just the most amazing birds. We went to a bird sanctuary a few months ago and the vet actually put his whole head inside the pelican's beak. I couldn't believe how the skin at the bottom stretched. Great fotos Marci, the one you took over the water is superb

  7. Wonderful Pelican photos!
    I live in north Mississippi, so the extent of my Pelican knowledge is that there are Brown Pelicans and there are White Pelicans!
    Have a great week-end!

  8. I once went to Reel Foot Lake in the northwest corner of TN to a pelican fest. They flew out that morning and I missed seeing any. I know nothing about them but was surprised to learn they pass this way as they migrate. Maybe one day I will see them. Nice pictures!

  9. Great photos. We stopped in Virginia (on the shore) last year returning from our family vacation and my mother in law pointed out all the pelicans. We loved watching them land in the water since they are rather inelegant about it.

  13. Great pictures. I grew up about an hour from the east coast and now that I live in the mountains I miss seeing wild life like this. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

  14. Wow - I live in Northern France so no Pelicans here. I have seen them in a zoo and I have to say they are very impressive birds - THAT beak!!! Do you know if they are common in the wild?

    Thank you so much for linking up to #GoingGreen and I hope you'll pop over for the next one which opens on July 3rd 💚
