Here is a small group of Brown Pelicans on a sand dune at J.N. Ding Darling NWR. They were fairly far out, but I liked the feather detail and textures plus their eyes seem to be looking at you. They were also positioned in an interesting group with the tallest bird on a small tree branch, almost giving a triangular composition of the birds .
