Brown Pelican

One of my favorite birds. At one time they were so very rare in the Gulf Coast. DDT, a pesticide, almost eliminated them completely from our area. They've returned and the numbers are growing. For that I can be thankful.

 

Pelicans are not too worried about nearness to people. It was easy to get close with the little P&S to get this guy. He didn't like the DSLR though.
