Description

While visiting Ft. Matanzas National Monument on the Matanzas River south of St. Augustine, Fl., I noticed several pelicans fishing to the south of the monument. I focused in on one pelican who seemed to be circling in an attempt to land. I timed my bursts on the downward spiral and was able to get this shot just before the pelican made a soft landing in the river
