Pelicans are a genus of large water birds comprising the family Pelecanidae. They are characterised by a long beak and large throat pouch used in catching prey and draining water from the scooped up contents before swallowing. They have predominantly pale plumage, the exceptions being the Brown and Peruvian Pelicans. The bills, pouches and bare facial skin of all species become brightly coloured before the breeding season.

Landing gear still up, so I guess just flying around to spot fishes. The low light gives warm colors and a special texture to the water.

Superb snapshot. Thanks to the soft light the bird's plumage is rendered incredibly well, with great feather detail, and it's also lovely and sharp. I particularly like the differential focus, with the bird standing out against nicely blurred background. Excellent bird photo.
Wish you a nice weekend.
