Just flapping along

I was standing on a grassy hillock at Hat Head the other day, when this pelican came flapping along, looking for a landing nearby. I was shooting into the sun, so you don't get to see his wonderful black and white colouring in this shot. Just liked the way he nonchalantly flew past me as though I was part of the scenery.
Great capture. Might work well for the BTRs challenge this week.

@webfoot Thanks, Paul. It would, except that I took it outside the date range. Never mind.

He looks like he's trying to fly out of your shot. A great capture. I love how the sparkly water is different shades of green!
