Sebastian, Florida, United States
I was out and about last weekend and doing what I usually do and that is looking for animals usually Birds doing something that makes for a great photo for my very new venture DawnInTheSunrise. While trying to get a few pictures of the Frigate birds in flight. They were to far away but while on top of the Sebastian bridge looking down I saw this Pelican Flying low. With the wind being as strong as it was, it seemed the Pelican was having trouble so it adjust it’s wings to a glide. It was funny to watch and eventually it just landed. I was very lucky to catch this on camera. I saw your contest from the Cornell lab on Facebook and thought, I would enter. I love watching birds of all kinds. I thought this would be fun.
