Solitary Pelican on Mobile Bay
This pelican was quietly bobbing along close to shore seemingly unaware of me. He appeared perfectly content to let the waves carry him along. Shortly before I took this picture, I watched him dive repeatedly for fish. I imagined his belly full, the sun and the motion of the waves making him sleepy.
