Pelican Catching a Fish

I took nearly 100 photos of brown pelicans at the tip of Cape Hatteras this afternoon, including this one of a pelican attempting to catch a fish. They look pretty goofy while fishingand flying. I was particularly glad to snap some pictures of an Osprey, which I’d never sighted before. Most of the birds there were laughing gulls.

It was at the same spot that I took a picture of floatsam last October.

  1. WOW– incredible picture Waldo. I was there in April– Cape Hattaras National Seashore is an amazing place- and I’m sure you love the fact that they allow dogs. We had a great time. Keep taking those fantastic shots!
