White Pelican Reflection

White Pelican Reflection
While I was staying over in Morris, MN, on an event for the Minnesota Odonata Survey Project, I got up early one morning. The sun had just risen when I spotted this white pelican in the water. The air was still and the pelican was barely moving. The new light of dawn hit the still water and turned it into glass giving me a perfect reflection.

That pelican is so still and reflection so perfect, it looks like a fake bird. Such perfect conditions.

It must surely be sitting on a mirror, for I see no water in this shot! Lovely.

Wow! That is indeed a PERFECT reflection! This is the first white pelican I've ever seen...I didn't know they came in white. Gorgeous shot.
