Douglas--I just love this photo!! When I enlarged it and studied it for a bit--it reminded me of a diva wrapped in a big fur coat. Not that I am for fur coats, mind you. I had to look closely to see if there was a cigarett in a long cigarette holder LOL. Awesome shot!!

Thanks, Lorri! This guy was the only one of probably 200 that was in this strange stance. My favorite shot of some 300 I took that day. Thanks for your comments... made me laugh!!! #1801921

Great shot!! I love taking bird pictures, but it's hard to capture them doing something unique! Well done!!

This pelican tried to hide his identity to no avail, as he was surrounded by hundreds of his kind on the cliffs at La Jolla, near San Diego.
