Rookery of Great White Pelicans in Flight

A rookery of great white pelicans fly above Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

Sometimes people are in the right place at the right time and sometimes it almost seems like nature is conspiring to help you get a really unique shot. I was driving around Grand Teton National Park this weekend hoping for a bear sighting, but that doesn’t mean my eyes were fixed on the ground. In traveling one of the lesser driven roads, I looked up and saw a large rookery (aka, flock) of great white pelicans swooping over a ridge moving directly overhead. They circled around a few times and by the time another car came into view, they had broken up and flown much farther away.

You may be out looking for one specific subject, but don’t let that train your eyes away from the other wonders out there.
