    Wonderful photos! The first one is my favorite – I love the regal set of his (her?) head in flight. They can look so ungainly, almost comical, on land, but they look like such strong and graceful flyers.

    And I love hearing about the relationship between Kokkre Belur and their pelican friends! It’s wonderful when we humans choose to live in harmony and community with our fellow beings.
