Go ahead. Stretch your neck out



Feel like a little stretching this morning.   This Brown Pelican got his gumption up.  He is not stretching, though, because he is sleepy or just waking up.  The ferry boat from Canal Street in heart of New Orleans over to Algiers  (actually the other way around) is coming up to dock.  That means a good chance that it will stir up a few fish.  It is going to be a good meal.  Stretch that throat and get readdy.

Beautiful shot, Steve. Notice the hook on the end of the beak. My birds are pitifully small compared to your bird.

I don't remember seeing a pelican doing that. Fantastic capture!

Come on, Steve, if you don't want to use a tripod for wildlife shots, at least get a monopod. You have good pictures but none of them are sharp. HipPics.smugmug.com
