Diving Brown Pelican

Two Brown Pelicans patrolled the waters off the Gulf Coast of Florida.  One of them decided its next meal was waiting below.

Diving Forster’s Tern

During a recent trip to the Florida Gulf Coast I was watching several Forster’s Terns as they hunted above the gulf.  When they spotted a potential catch, they would hover for a second before diving, nearly straight down, into the water.  I took lots of photos of them flying and hovering before I was able to capture this one just before it splashed into the water.
