"Riparian Pelican" Photo:  Copyright 2015, Jeff Curtis, All Rights Reserved

Riparian Pelican

Was at a wildlife preserve in the Phoenix
area and testing three telephoto lenses.

Another photographer asked me if I'd seen
the pelicans that had just flown in from California.

I hadn't yet and when he told me where to find
them I rushed over to where he said they were.

When I arrived, I found three magnificent pelicans
wading together and feeding not far from shore —
and I began taking tons of photos of them.

This photo was the best of the bunch. I love
that I caught this guy right after it raised its head
from the pond and you can see a drop of
water on the tip of it's beak.
