American white pelicans are some of the first migratory birds to return to the Colorado Front Range in the spring. Their arrival is a sure sign of the changing of the seasons.
On Thursday, I saw some but they were too far off to do anything with. Yesterday after work, I found a couple dozen of them hanging out at a local pond. They provided a couple of hours’ worth of fun photo ops as they swam, flew and fished.
These guys are just gorgeous – and massive. They are also my wife’s favorite so when I see them, I am required to photograph them or I will hear about it. 😉
