A truly fantastic capture of this magnificent pelican! It looks like it should grace the cover of National Geographic.

Wonderful! :)

Thank you, Mary Alice, Siggy, Jacques, INessa, Luis, lavieorange, picsonthemove, and Sonny.

I took a number of shots while he was just sitting on that rough volcanic rock. Then I caught this just before he flew off! I guess he thought he had posed long enough.

Marilyn, I was delighted to find these photos at your page. I also visited last month this natural paradise. It was a very great experience!
