Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

I had some other ideas for this week’s photo challenge but I was walking through the woods and the reflection of the trees in this stream caught my attention.  Perhaps too literal a treatment of this week’s theme but I liked the color and the stillness of the water at this spot.

Anticipating Pelican

This Brown Pelican seems to know sometimes a little patience pays off.  It stood there for a while, quietly waiting to see if the fisherman had any handouts.  Unfortunately it never got that meal.  Two other fisherman arrived and the pelican decided it was time to move along.
