Pelicans and reflections in Lake Merritt, CA

I walk the 3.5 miles around Lake Merritt in Oakland as often as I can. This morning i noticed the reflections of the buildings in the ripples around a group of pelicans and snapped a bunch of pictures. Notice the image of a bird in the reflection above the pelican? I thought of titling it Pelican Dreams of Being a Blue Bird.
