15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pelican Quartet

Pelicans in Mexico are normally shun as a very common bird or a bird not as pretty as others. However in this photo we can admire the beauty and elegance of this gentle giants as they stand perched on a tree to get a bit of sunlight. I wanted to capture that grace they possess and show that even common species, are also incredibly beautiful.
