Florida pelicans just off the coast of Naples, waiting for fishermen’s catches !
Hey Ralph, these are strange colour pelicans to what we have, is that the norm where you come from?
I photographed these pelicans late in the day, as you can see by the sun. I was on vacation in Naples, on the west Gulf of Mexico coast of Florida. These birds are called Brown Pelicans and are very unpopular among beach people and fishermen. They are lazy and wait for an easy catch !You can see another photo on my page of one of these guys diving.
Awesome capture! Ive never seen a pelican before in my life! Seeing this many must be a common site there?
Yes, pelicans are abundant on the west coast of Florida. You can sit on a pier and look at these guys diving for hours. A real getaway !Sometimes as pelican gets caught by a fisherman’s hook. They have to scoop the pelican up with a net and get the hook out !

Beautiful image !!! :D
Thanks Mika & Evita.
Can help but love this !
Beautiful brown pelicans. I’ve never seen this many together before.
Thanks ! These pelicans were waiting in line for a fisherman to drop his catch from the pier! The lazy way !
Thanks Michelle !
Fabulous capture, what an amazing sight :) I’ve never seen these sort of pelicans in Australia.
I believe that your pelicans are white ? The Brown pelican is very common in southern Florida. Thanks for the comment !
Cool shot !!!
