Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/1000s, f/5.6, ISO 100, focal length 32.8mm; AUTO setting

This beautiful pelican was beginning to preen its back feathers. You can see how far it has turned its neck…the eye that you see is its right eye. See it better in the larger view.
Photo taken in Cedar Key, Florida, USA.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Love pelicans (my favorite non-backyard bird, in fact)! Outstanding!

  • They are interesting birds and fearless around people on the docks. I was intrigued the way this one turned his head a full 180. Thanks very much for your kind comment!
