Wednesday,White, Outdoors, Watery, Wordless,Rednesday

Being a beach girl,  I love the variety of seabirds on any beach..
but my favorite of all  is the brown Pelican..
Ungainly, so outrageously put together, this clown steals my heart..
Big webbed feet,
a long sac beak which can catch  fish as he skims across the water,
his crested topknot and blue eyes..
ready for a handout..
yep.. a favorite of photographers and  artists everywhere.
synonymous.. beach  and Pelican.. FUN!

  4. Leave it to you , my dear, to love the pelican most of all! I always tell my friends that pelicans are the nerds of the beach birds. They are something with their antics, aren't they? I do love all our birds, they are my favorite companions as I walk the shore in the early morn.

    Here in Tampa, the egrets, herons, Roseate Spoonbills and more come to feed on the little fish in the retention ponds in my neighborhood. They are not as used to people as those on the beaches and fly off if I get too close. But I'm slowly winning the over.

    Fun photos.

    Hugs

  5. I was on Marco Island yesterday watching the pelicans dive for food. They are funny birds. I love the way they fly just inches over the water. You need a beach day girl!

    Take good care,

    Karen

  9. Fantastic shots of that pelican! I bet you could just sit there all day and get one great picture after another, because they look like they can be quite silly!
    Happy REDnesday!

  10. Great pictures! I think you and I have a bit in common. I grew up in Florida and then moved to Colorado. I live there for about 8 years before returning to Florida to be with my family. If you are feeling home sick you can check out my blog, www.adventureswithjessica.blogspot.com I'm trying really hard to boost my number of followers. :)

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
