16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
pelican wingspan

These pelicans were cruising along our small boat in Walvis Bay, Namibia. They came so close it was like we were making eye contact. I love the fact that this picture shows the wingspan of both pelicans. The weather wasn't very good, but in this photo it the pelicans seem to appear from te fog.
