A Brown Pelican, as photographed by Tom Eckles

One thing I very much appreciate about Tom Eckles is his promise that his photos reflect exactly what he was seeing. No Photoshop and even no cropping. He saw this Brown Pelican silhouetted in the blue sky and captured this photograph.

Could the sky be bluer? Just beautiful. Thanks to Tom for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see more of Tom's photography, here's his web site: tomeckles.com

A young Brown Pelican was hanging around the pier at Point Arena this week. We were concerned because this is abnormal behavior. Well-meaning folks probably were feeding it. That is not good for the Pelican because it needs to learn to fish for itself and can only do so by practice, practice, practice. Luckily the juvenile bird flew off. We do love the elegant Brown Pelicans!
