Spotted Chatting at the Lake ..........



~  pelicanus conspicllatus  ~

Australian pelicans with their long pink bills and beautiful yellow rimmed eyes
 are generally easier to capture because their take off time is nice and easy
and generally they would much rather stand in the shallows chatting


~   Greenfields Wetlands   ~

Just close by, was this possy of cute little ducks
possibly grey teals and chesnut teals?

That's an especially beautiful photo of the Pelicans and their reflections. I wish I could see some Chestnut Teals - I saw them years ago when my camera was not good enough to get good photos.

I love both the pelicans and the Teals. But the reflection shot of the Pelicans is gorgeous!

Valerie said...

A charming capture of the pelicans with great reflections - the bird on the left is looking rather coy!

Great photos of the pelicans. I couldn't believe the size of the Australian pelicans.

Andrew said...

As others say, the reflections are great. Aren't they just a wondrous bird.

Hi Dianne. Pelicans are such fascinating birds. They look so cumbersome yet they are so graceful on the water and in flight. That top shot is so clear it's like looking through a window. Terrific J.

The green and gold colour in the water of the pelican photo is wonderful.

I wonder if madam pelican is being 'chatted up' Dianne, the pelican on the left is looking a little 'coy'! Wonderful reflections.

River said...

Pelican #1: morning Bill, how's that new feather conditioner working out.
Pelican #2: I can't get this patch at the back to lie down smoothly.

Love the ducks.

Dianne said...

Thanks River .... Love it!

Phil said...

Super shot of the pelicans Dianne. They look so relaxed.

biebkriebels said...

Very nice shots, the pelicans look enjoying their company.

Nice pictures. The females of these teal can be hard to tell apart - I don't think I'm every truly confident which is which unless they are next to a male!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Beautiful photos; I love the reflections!

I enjoyed your post. Pelicans are definitely one of my favorite subjects, especially since they are so abundant here in Florida.

Jack said...

These are so similar and yet so different from the brown pelicans that are common in Florida. Nice photo of the gabbing pair.

Gina Gao said...
