We have never seen so many pelicans in one pond before.
These are my wife, Judy's photos.
I hope you like!

Her first shot is the kind I like. They are such beautiful formation flyers and "fishermen". They really not a unique bird. Be sure to tell your wife their are some of us that just love good shots.

All are great, but the first is a winner to me.

What is there to not like about #1. Great symmetry, nice exposure (not easy with white and black birds against a bright blue sky), good eye contact. Shot to be proud of!

I apologize for my failure to check my work. My third sentence should have read "They really not as unique as some birds are to some photographers but their flying habits are loved by some of us." Sorry about the older statement unfinished sentence.
