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! :) #1486866

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.
