Pelicans are one of my favorites to watch especially in flight. I captured these two images at Sylvan Beach in Texas. I visited this beach on consecutive days watching the freighters move in and out of the harbor and following the birds that sailed around the shore line. The air was cool each day and the fog drifted over the water and the island opposite the beach. Pelicans do not look like they can actually fly but somehow they manage to do so.
