Beautiful!
*I saw Takeaway as the title but didn't notice the caught fish when I first replied. A really terrific photo-catch.

I've never seen black & white Pelicans. They sure know how to dress. :)

If you have - or get to take - a photo of them with wings spread and/or flying, I hope you';; share them.
Thanks, buzzie

Flying pelicans?

They're my favourite birds...

Thanks. Great photos.
Amazing wing span. I guess they need it to lift their weight to fly, especially after a big fish meal. You caught the pelican at the left of the 2nd photo looking as though it's striking a ballet pose.

Of the bigger birds, my favorites are Ospreys - love them and follow several of their nests online - and Anhingas - I see them in south Florida.
