I live in the Pelican State but oddly enough, I rarely have the pleasure of seeing a pelican. On my way home from work today, I was surprised to see a flock of pelicans on the lake. I didn't have a camera with me, but since this is the first sunny day we have seen in a week and it is supposed to be cloudy again tomorrow, I hurried home and grabbed the camera and managed to take a few pictures. They were too far out for me to get a good shot, but I didn't let that stop me.
Most shots were like this one... with their back to me! I also took a few other pictures of the lake while I was out there. Even though it is winter and very little green is showing, nature is still beautiful. I love the color of the grass and trees against the water and the blue of the sky.
I caught a pair of Mallard's gliding along the bank. Again, I love the dried grasses.
I saw this egret on the way home and took a picture out the car window......can't figure out what happened to his eye! I think he must have closed it at the time I snapped the picture. Such a graceful bird. We see these all around the house all year long.
I wish there had been more time to enjoy the sunshine! We expecting more winter weather for the rest of the week. Will it ever be spring????
