Watery Wednesday #73

I thought I'd be able to post a little more before Watery Wednesday rolled around again but that didn't happen. Still, I did get out to Bolsa Chica Wetlands/Ecological Reserve this past weekend. I had such a great time. There weren't quite as many birds as I've seen before but the ones that were there definitely put on a show. This is right up my Watery Wednesday alley so I hope you enjoy them all. This is my Watery Wednesday input (wetlands...get it? LOL!)

The first thing I saw when I got out of the car was this pelican flying around and then diving into the water for fish, then it just chilled in the water with its buddy.




Happy Watery Wednesday!

It's so hard to catch birds in flight - that's one awesome picture you've got! Pelicans have quite a contented expression, I think :)

I am still trying to get used to the pelicans. Since they are not found this far north, I only see them in photos, and I still think of them as odd looking!
As for it being a bit cool - there is no ice, therefore it is warmer than her!!

Kitty - I do have a hard time catching things in flight especially since I have to try to find them and then zoom in and by then they're gone. Everyone once in a while it works out. :-)

Judy - I'm so glad we have them here. They always remind me of Terradactyl when they're in flight.

You are such a good photographer. These are fantastic pictures!

When I was in California the other week Bolsa Chica Wetlands is one of the places that was on my list but I didn't get there.

The water has to play second fiddle to the pelicans.

Your bird photos in Bolsa Chica are very amazing. I have always pass Bolsa Chica whenever we are driving that area. Should visit there one day.

I've been too busy to keep track of everyone for a while now, but am finally just about caught up. I love that you make your entire post available in your feeds so that I didn't miss your wonderful pelican captures as I was scrolling through in my reader.
Hugs and blessings,
