More Pelicans for Watery Wednesday

During our visit to the Outer Banks we saw a lot of Pelicans. There were quite a few Pelicans hanging out by the bridge at Pea Island. I think the Pelican is a cool looking bird... kind of pre-historic looking and one of my favorites and I love to watch them dive into the water for food. I was happy to see so many of them doing well and in one spot.








These are my shots for Watery Wednesday  Thanks to 2sweetnsaxy for hosting this watery meme.
And thanks for visiting my watery post.

  2. Eileen,
    Been enjoying you Outer Banks photo, our neck of the woods. The coolest time I have had with pelicans is having them dive bomb for food near my sea kayak at Cape Lookout!

  22. Terrific captures of the birds and the rough waters! Actually, they are one of my favorites to shot. They tend to sit still in time for my shutter to click.

    Happy Wednesday Pam.

  26. Nice shots of the Pelicans and sand dunes, Eileen. Two of my favorite things.
    Thanks for the special view.

  27. The state bird of Louisiana is the pelican and our Charity School of Nursing pin has a pelican on it. I was horrified when, after my move to CA, there was a rash of incidents where someone was sawing off the bills of pelicans so that they could not fish for food. Such terrible cruelty!

    Your photos are wonderful.
