I marvel at the Pelican’s ability to land

My contribution for this week’s challenge…
On August 05, 2014 I was at a commemoration service
across the Bay, at Point Nepean,
to remember the firing of
The First (allied) Shot of World War I.
Towards the end of the ceremony this flight
of pelicans made and appearance.
Maverick would call it a ‘fly by’, I think.
a formation turn before…
seeking safer airspace before a twenty-first century
gun crew fired another shot to commemorate
firing of the First Shot exactly 100 years earlier.
Seagull at Balyang Sanctuary, Geelong.
Love the colour of the water in this shot.
This is probably my favourite in-flight photo.
No distractions…and the wing tips give it
the look of a 787 Dreamliner.
