Leap to flight
January 2011

Leap to flight

City Park, New Orleans

Brown Pelicans are the smallest of all pelican species but are still considered a large bird. Lift off can be challenging but the younger birds are pretty quick.

For best viewing please choose ORIGINAL size.

Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.

other sizes: small medium large original

Beautiful take off photo, Phil. Spot on feather detail and color. Top notch wing position. I like everything about this photo. Vote.

Super shot Phil. They aren't too graceful on land , but then again they were made for flying.
