pelican wingspan

These pelicans were cruising along our small boat in Walvis Bay, Namibia. They came so close it was like we were making eye contact. I love the fact that this picture shows the wingspan of both pelicans. The weather wasn't very good, but in this photo it the pelicans seem to appear from te fog.
