The birds are the same but the shadows differ

Brown pelicans in a quiet harbor in Florida reflect beautifully, as does the red on the boat.

Brown pelicans in Cancun, Mexico, cause only faint reflections in the shallows of the Atlantic.

L'eau de la première photo paraît presque métallique. Très beau !

Dimple said...

The reflections are beautiful, but I prefer the brown pelicans all in a row! (And I think Mary Contrary would, too!)

Pat Tillett said...

BEAUTIFUL!
I love both of these photos!

Standing on a post, you wonder how are able to fly. But airborne they are graceful and scooping up fish with that big bill is amazing. The first image is a delightful, shimmering reflection!

Such different pelicans from what we have here in Australia. But they are a gorgeous bird, no matter the variety.

Terrific shots.

Two great shots. The pelican is such an interesting looking bird.

Kay said...

Wow! I love both photos, but that first one is really spectacular with that black of the water.

Ah wonderful! And adding the name of the boat was a stroke of genius. I wonder what happens when an eagle meets a pelican!

Francisca said...

Don't recall ever seeing so many pelicans together. Wow.

The first one is really awsome... The water looks like some melted gold... The colors are so vivid on it... I love it !

Woody said...

I don't see a lot of pelicans, so this is a treat and their reflections are wonderful!

Pelicans are a huge favorite of ours -- I love that you "collect" them on your travels.
