That looks like a windy day and that water just doesn't look deep enough for that Pelican to dive! Wow that water in the BG looks like a huge wave?
Those colors are special Steve and a good grab on the dive bomber!

Thanks Karl! Took a few moments away from my own fishing to watch and photograph a large flock of pelicans diving on a big school of mullet. Always fun to watch these guys! Steve

Thank you Morris! I shot multiple images of these guys diving on a school of mullet. I particularly liked the frozen drama of this one! Steve

Nicely captured and enjoyable image, Steve! There must be plenty of fish there for you to share with the pelican and chances are you would be less interested in the fish size that the pelican targets anyway .

Spot on Joshua. The pelicans were targeting a large school of smaller mullet. We were targeting tarpon. We had a slow day for tarpon but the pelicans had a good day for mullet! Thanks for your kind comments! Steve
