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.
