Only a Pelican

Did this little watercolor of this brown

pelican. I am going to add some kind

of background...still thinking.

They are the state bird of

Louisiana. This one was in a zoo. I

have photographed a few in the wild,

but they are hard to get close to. I have

seen them flying in groups at the seashore

and they are impressive. And I have also

seen them dive straight down into the

water to catch a fish...amazing. They tuck

their wings, point that huge bill straight

down, and plummet into the water, causing

a huge splash. And most of the time, they

come up with a wiggling fish! Just another

one of God's fabulous creations...
