Love the second photo of them all preening together, and love the brightness of both photos.

Someone asked me about the first photo - the pelicans were swimming along and instead of walking straight out of the water onto the sand bar, two of them actually flapped their wings for a bit of lift to get up onto the bar. The others walked up easily.
