  4. I love the sight of pelicans (and cranes)! I understand the American white pelicans are making a come-back close by in the Minnesota lakes country. Gorgeous photos, and your haiku is lovely. Thanks!

  9. A wonderful series, love how you can even see his eye in one of the photos, and the the detail on the feather, all with some great scenery. I can see I’ll learn a bunch just from studying everyone else’s photos.
