18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pelican at the Intersection of Complimentary Colors

This American White Pelican (π˜—π˜¦π˜­π˜¦π˜€π˜’π˜―π˜Άπ˜΄ 𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘡𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘳𝘩𝘺𝘯𝘀𝘩𝘰𝘴) swam around for hours looking for food. This photo captured a brief moment where the intersection green and red in the background lined up perfectly, and the drop of water from his bill elegantly connected him with his reflection.
