California Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis)

Dinosaur-like, a restful mature Pelican has the demeanor of a wise old man. This beautiful creature allowed me to photograph him at fairly close range; he was trusting and remained calm but I was respectful and quickly retreated after capturing a portrait image.
