    Oh how embarrassing for him to be caught in the act. Fantastic details and superb timing Val. We are getting some much needed rain in Del Rio and will send it your way.

Val, this brings back such memories. I was born in Corpus and spent many a day in my youth fishing. Pelicans were a joy to watch with their unusual looks, however, they are so beautiful in flight and diving for fish. You really capture a great image of an old friend.

Amazing capture of this bird, love the public display of its bathing ritual. It's probably giving the photographer tips on how to do it correctly. Nice job on this one.

He does look a little startled and slightly annoyed, Val! But what a wonderful capture of him doing his thing! I just love brown pelicans but rarely get to see them.
