One of the best things about living in Southern California is still getting to go to the beach when most other parts of the country are battening down the hatches for winter or have already experienced their first blizzard! Thanks to some summery-type temps, I was able to catch Brown Pelicans at sunset in Laguna Beach:
Lots of splish-splashing as this group indulged in a sunset bath.
One of the few birds I can manage to catch in flight - slow and majestic!
A little post-bath floating around in the surf.
A lone sentinel on Seal Rock.
