Fun Friday: Open Wide!

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from my January bald eagle photography workshop on the Mississippi River in eastern Iowa. A single, American White Pelican flew in and was fishing in front of us for a while, during 2 of our 3 days on the river. I just love the expression on this guy as he held a fish within his beak:

For an even better view, I’ve cropped the above photo to better show the open pouch:

I have a few more pelican images from that trip. I’ll share them in an upcoming post.
