Salton Sea Pelicans

 Near the Salton Sea.

 This trio seemed to be posing. 
They're such
 a humorous looking bird.

 Very contented.

Loving the new camera! 

 Checking me out?

Photographing from the road, above the beach, the angle of the camera and the
pelican taking flight resulted in this bizarre effect.  He almost looks flat against the sea.

For some facts about the Salton Sea
read a Blog post here. Written by Randy Brown
the post lists what he was ignorant about 
regarding the Salton Sea.

I love our pelicans but I hate to say it but yours look weird, ours are large superb black and white while yours are smaller and brown

Wonderful photos!! That one pelican IS checking you out! :)))
I have never seen any of Penny's black pelicans but I have seen the white ones and the brown ones. Love all of them... so odd and yet majestic... regal and yet clown like. Thanks for sharing all the GREAT photos. Good deal getting your new camera!!!
