American White Pelican

Today I had to go to Mirror Lake & Park to take photos to be included in a grant application for park improvement funds.  The deadline is tomorrow and we have been waiting for days for it to be clear and sunny.  No luck, overcast and rainy, freezing (11 degrees) & VERY windy.  Had to take the pictures today.  I was SO glad I did.  I took photos all the way around the lake of all topics the Park President asked for, when I got to the far side of the lake, I spotted a white bird with a bunch of Canadian geese.  I walked over slowly and happened to catch some nice photos.  Introducing the American White Pelican.

I hope you all enjoy them…It was a beautiful and magical moment for me.
