Brown Pelican (Cape Coral, Florida)

I don’t take a lot of wildlife pictures and I’m sure more often than not there are birds, elk, other animals right in front of my face when I’m out roaming around throughout the year. However, every now and then an opportunity presents itself and you have to take a few pictures. We were walking around in Cape Coral, Florida when several brown pelicans started diving for fish. It isn’t the most glorious animal but I think I got a nice shot of him in flight as he sought out his prey beneath the surface.

If you weren’t aware all US National Parks are free starting tomorrow and through President’s Day on Monday (February 16th) so if there is a park near your house that you’ve thought about trying out but didn’t want to pay the entrance fee now is your chance! Get out there and take in the beauty of America – we live in such a beautiful place and are fortunate to do so. I wish I was closer to the western half of the country though – the midwest in Chicago is so flat :(. Fortunately, my work brings me out that way a few times a year and I get to leverage that into weekends in the mountains. It is what keeps me sane!

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.”

– Ray Bradbury
