Plethora of Pelicans

I had no idea there were so many pelicans in Wascana Park…

The pictures above were taken a couple of weeks ago, so then I had to go into my photo library and have a look at the other pelican pictures I’ve taken, mostly near the Albert Street Bridge. The last two are my favourite, a happy coincidence of good timing and just the right light.

tropical kingfisher?

Every morning in Puerto Vallarta while enjoying a cup of coffee, I’d have my camera ready to take pictures of activity in Banderas Bay – sometimes it was a cruise ship coming into port or fishing boats, but a lot of times I was trying to capture all the different birds that landed in view of the balcony.

I think this is a tropical kingfisher, but please correct me if I’m wrong.
