As I was standing and looking out over the lake, I felt a little disappointed at the apparent lack of wildlife in the immediate area. Then I heard a passing kayaker tell one of his companions to “look up”. As I lifted my eyes, I was amazed to see a large flock of white pelicans quietly soaring right above my head. Such a beautiful and graceful sight that I would have otherwise missed if I hadn’t overheard the suggestion to look up.
“… How often we miss God’s treasures
Just because we don’t raise our eyes.
By keeping our narrow focus
We blunder and miss the prize …”

How absolutely stunning! Its so cool how God puts things right within eyeshot and how we could easily miss it without looking up.
So true! 🙂
An amazing sight!
It really was, and very unexpected! 🙂
Beautiful. Always look up.
Thanks! With that many birds over my head, you’d think I would have heard something. But I had no clue.
You can’t miss cranes and geese because they are so noisy, but do pelicans squawk when they fly?
Sources I found on the internet say that they are mostly silent birds though they can make a low grown.
Stealth flyers! 😉
WOW–that’s a LOT of pelicans!
It was a surprise to see so many overhead. Most often, I see them out on the water.
