Pelican Dives

I got some cool pictures of Pelicans diving while on vacation (no the Pelicans weren't on vacation, I was). When you watch them it's so fast you don't really see the details of the motion. The pictures show that they stab their heads into the water with their neck extended just as they hit the water. Pretty neat.

Great pictures. Looks like you had a beautiful vacation. Provided a nice selection of views of the location. Have not been too keen on going to Mexico with all the crime reported there but this looks almost picture-book.

Thanks Andy. It was a very relaxing week. Apparently most of the crime is up near the border and as usual gets amplified by the media.
