Ever since moving to Long Beach I have been intrigued with pelicans. The first one I saw was sitting on the pier one day and people were throwing fish in the air and it would catch them with it's mouth. I could have sat there all day watching it, I can't really explain why, I just know that I like their character. Almost every morning on my way to work there would be at least one pelican sitting on top of the light posts that extend over the Marina bridge. Seeing them sitting up there would put a smile on my face and start my day off good. So here is my drawing study of pelicans. I actually took this picture on Catalina Island where there were many of these birds fishing in the bay.
