Voracious in it’s apettite, a White Pelican can put away a lot of fish before retiring for the day and just groom they’re plummage before night falls.

    Great timing for you & the pelican, Franklin, but the fish was a bit slow! LOL
    Super shot

  • Hi jesika. If it weren’t for fish in the world, we would all starve, but poor fish indeed…lol

    you get this recently Frank?

  • Yes, why I took this today, Oct 31st. They just arrived here from up north, less than a week now. You should start seeing them here until perhaps late March.

    Franklin , I wish we had these pelicans here, I never see them so I don’t believe they are in this part of the state. Love this photo nice capture !

  • Hi Karen. I know what you mean. When I first saw them at Ding Darling on Sanibel Island it was from afar. When I found out they were landing behind some fishery nearby here I was flabbergasted and ever since I’ve been photographing them. You can also find them up at Blackpoint refuge at Cape Canaveral in the winter and early spring.
