Pelican watercolor 16″x20″

This little guy was posing so proudly as all the tourist in Key West snapped a picture of him.  I was one of them!  Every time I go to the beach, I look for pelicans.  I love the way they glide so gracefully a few feet above the water, looking for unsuspecting fish swimming close to the surface. When they spot one, they circle up into the air and then dive into the water, coming up again with fish in their bills.  They are expert fishermen!  They love to hang out by the docks, where they can rest and maybe catch a snack thrown to them. Thank you, God, for making pelicans!
