Fishing Brown Pelicans in Baja California

I spent an afternoon with the Balandra Beach Divebomber Squadron earlier this week. While not the most elegant birds in the world brown Pelicans sure put a lot of effort in their fishing technique and are a pure joy to watch.

I hope you like these:

Simply awesome photographs. I love Pelicans and have only seen them a few times but never fishing. I like how they go down head first like an arrowhead. This must have been a great experience to witness first hand.

Thank you very much, it really was a very cool thing to see!

Hi there @denisroschlau!

Great shots at those pelican birds in action! Its really hard to get a crisp shot in moving objects, but you had excellently captured each dive and flaps well.

Congrats on your curie love. Cheers! ❤

Thanks, i did my best... :-)

Hello @denisroschlau, your pictures are beautiful! I love the second: it looks like a pelican in space !! :-))

Thank you very much and it really does look a bit like that :-)
