One of a brief of pelicans we met whilst on a late afternoon walk on Urangan Beach, in Hervey Bay, Queensland... Captured in mid-winter, on the 26th of July 2012...

    What a cute guy! ... and he even has a name! I love the look of Percy's feathers, his extra long beak and the way his webbed feet are planted in the mud! A fabulous portrait capture of this beautiful Pelican, Carolyn! He gave you a lovely pose! :)

What a fabulous capture, Carolyn. I love everything about this image, including how his feet are sinking ever so lightly into the mud. Beautiful work.

A WONDERFUL Portrait so nice of him to cooperate for it. They are amazing birds. I enjoy just watching them GLIDE through the air seemingly forever w/o having to flap those big wings.
