Brown Pelican Pose Vertical

Brown Pelican Pose Vertical - This pelican was hanging out on the breakers along the ship channel in hopes of the big tankers stiring the fish up so they could scope them up in his oversize beak with it pouch like net that holds his meal. We love to watch pelicans as they fly over the area till they find fish near the surface and dive bomb straight down and scope up fish in their large beaks. The brown pelicans is a large bird around 48 inches tall with a 9 foot wing span you can't miss them. When they fly it like a squadron of jet fighers in perfect order. This adult pelican with its mostly white head and it silver gray feathers on its back and belly shows that it is a mature bird and likely getting it breeding plummage by the touch of yellow on his head. You can find these bird around where people fish hoping for some scrapes of their catch of the day. These birds were almost wiped out by DDT along with other pesticides, but have made a come back since the 1970. Big oil spill also have taken a toll on them such as the deep horizon spill. You can see the band on this bird leg to keep track of them,. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
