Sky Watch Friday

This handsome pelican was posing at the Newport Pier, last Wednesday. Below is one of his cousins, flying by.

To visit other participants go to Skywatch Friday.
You'll see beautiful skies from all over the world.


  1. I am just so fascinated with Pelicans. Great pose Jan. Love the blue sky too. I sure wish we had some!
    Light snow today!

  2. Endless blue sky! Wonderful shots, Jan!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I love Pelicans, but rarely manage to get close enough to one to take a photo! I love that first close up you've posted!

  4. He is, indeed, a magnificent specimen. I hope he warms up and dries out quickly. He almost looks as though he has been plastered down with an oil.

    Wonderful shot of a hard to capture bird!

  5. Good shot. Have a good skywatch weekend.

  6. Wonderful skies and amazing critters.

  7. Such a beautiful blue palette going from light to more intense hue - the pelican is handsome, too.

  8. I always get a kick out of your bird shots. You have so many varieties that we don't have here in Ontario.

  9. Amazing blue blue skies enhanced by dormant feathers and wings!

  10. That is a wonderful photo. And, he is very handsome.
