Life on the Coast

Eye-to-eye with a Brown Pelican. Over the last several decades these once almost extinct seabirds have repopulated California's shores in massive numbers. There is a breathless majesty watching a scoop of pelicans glide by overhead in perfect formation. Our dear friend Franny captured this shot here in Morro Bay.


  1. What a beautiful shot!! We spent hours watching these amazing birds in Mexico in are lucky to have them in your backyard!


  2. Yes, this is so gorgeous. I feel for the poor babies on the Gulf.
