Pelican crush

You must forgive me ...
but I have such a crush
on these guys
that you may experience 
Pelican overload
while I'm here
in Anna Maria.

Pelicans are the original social networkers. That's what I think anyway ~ Enjoy!

We get big white pelicans in Iowa in spring and fall and I can't wait to see them. And I did a meeting in Florida one time, got to watching the pelicans, missed the opening meeting.

Wow....love these close ones! Each time I see your photos...I am reminded how you turned me onto "amplified" photo editing. ;-) I just posted a whole album on Facebook of Adjust HDR photos of NYC scenes. You are my inspiration, Reena!
