I visited (Deb could not accompany me on this trip sorry to write) the Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge (located south of Tallahassee, Florida along the Gulf of Mexico) on January 04, 2017 on a photography shoot when I noticed a few Brown Pelicans as well as several other types of birds flying in and around a particular water area. Apparently, the fish were plentiful in that area as they kept dive bombing, as I call it, into the water then taking flight again. Not only did it make for a great photo shoot but it was also very entertaining to watch. As many of you know Deb has been a photographer far longer than I. However, I have taken photographs using her cameras over the years but only for the reason of having visual prints for memory reasons. That is until I retired in late 2012. The point I'm trying to make is Deb has made and collected many in-flight bird images but this is my very first one worth being called a "keeper" or being worthy to be posted on our site. At least I hope it is worthy to be posted. As always the final judgement is up to you, the viewers on that subject. On with it. I managed to capture this beautiful Brown Pelican (scientific name is pelecaus occidentalis) as it was starting an upward flight movement before taking another dive. Deb liked this image very much and convinced me to post it. Hopefully, most of you will like it as well. All visits to our FAA-Pixels art sites are welcomed, encouraged and appreciated. Please visit often and, if you will, please tell your family and friends about our art sites. They may find something they like and thank you. Thank you for visiting. Bill & Deb Hayes
