White Pelicans in Flight

9-4-160002

Yesterday I spent some time at Saylorville Reservoir and watched some white pelicans in flight.

My photos do not do them justice.  These huge birds have a graceful, soaring flight.  When seen from a distance they are magnificent.  As the flock slowly turns, there is a change in the color as those flying away show the black trailing feathers, and those flying toward the viewer appear mostly white.

I watched for a while and felt a calmness.

Beautiful birds.
