0Y198 Splashing Pelican 6x4

Last week, I visited Save Our Seabirds, located by Mote Aquarium in Sarasota, FL. It was a very hot day and most of the birds were content to perch in some shady corner. However, as I made my way toward the cages in the rear, I could hear splashing. The pelican enclosure with its two pools showed me the reason. Many pelicans were thoroughly enjoying splashing in these pools using their powerful wings to create a small tempest for some cooling relief. It looked like a big bird bath. SOS proclaims they “Rescue – Rehabilitate – Release” sick and injured birds of the sea. These pelicans appeared to be really enjoying this part of their rehab!

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
