Soaring through a light blue sky, these four Brown Pelicans are fishing just offshore at Ocean Shores, WA. Their huge wings extended, three birds swoop towards the camera wings tilted at different angles, at the right of the photograph They are crossing a small, white cloud. The fourth is a bit off to the left of the group. The observer can see a webbed foot here and there sticking out from a squat body, and their characteristic long, light-coloured beak sticking straight down as they scan the water for fish.
