Other side of the iron bridge over the lower spillway steps
Those rocks just did not look comfortable to me but the pelicans seemed to favor them.

Description

Sunset Bay
As I sat and watched these 3 pelicans, they kept shifting their positions with each created formation more beautiful than the last. It was one of the most amazing beautiful things I've seen. I was able to capture many of their poses and it became a water ballet. If you are interested, here is the link to the 7 different positions they were in: http://www.kapturedbykala.com/Aquatic-Birds/i-Vc5pjjW
