Photo: The unremitting gaze of a gorgeously gawky pelican

71 of 903

Is there any animal that is as simultaneously awkward and elegant as the pelican? It's all gawky and gorgeous, as beautifully depicted in this image of a brown pelican photographed by Tony LePrieur in Varadero, Cuba. What an incredible experience it is to see these creatures dive-bombing for dinner or simply sailing through the sky.
