Brown Pelican diving.

By rontear  
Wonderfully acrobatic birds considering their size, this one doing what is best , diving. At least these individuals escaped the Deepwater disaster unlike many of the same species.

Incredible to see such a large bird diving like this. Super feather details and great pose caught here Ron. There's so much our wildlife has to fight against it's a wonder anything survives. Sad
You tend not to think of these birds as great divers but here's the proof, well done Ron great capture.

Caught the moment just right Ron and the positioning within the frame is perfect.
