This is beautifully captured with the light making the wings look silvery. I've seen these pelicans in Aruba and they will nose dive into the water right next to you -- it's a little startling but I've never been hit yet ;-)

Brings back memories of vacations past.

Excellent shot Nicole... because of the position of the bird I think that it moves very fast BUT you manage to get a very clear shot with excellent details on the feathers, bravo Nicole.
