Buy Add to Lightbox
This California brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis californicus) is photographed in profile closeup.  The Pelican is seen against the blue California sky with the ocean/horizon just visible at the bottom of the frame, and has just returned from fishing.  A single drop of water is at the tip of its beak, ready to drop.  The water drop can be seen falling in a subsequent image.
