Pelican Ballet


As they move so uniformly together I could almost hear the music



The dive seemed perfect in rhythmic motion
Back into formation
A double dip



More come to join in



Spectators stand in awe

I am sure there is a French name for this move

Those waiting on the sideline for their cue primp and get ready

  6. I find it so weird that you have pelicans. I always thought they were salt water birds.

  11. I noticed a flock of them still on Big Creek, next to Saylorville. I thought they were gone the past few days so was surprised stop see them.

  12. Beautiful photos. They do suggest ballet. A new version of Swan Lake? (Pelican Lake). How fortunate to get to see them like this.

  14. I can hear the music! I have seen them do that dance and it is pretty cool. Do you remember the photos I took of a group of males this spring? They had the huge bumps? Yours don't have bumps. They must be females?
