Description The pelican is not the most noble, nor graceful looking of birds. Not when flying and certainly not while waddling. But yet, I sought to portray the pelican with delicate dignity and poise, hoping to elevate its large beaked awkwardness to a position on par with the graceful egret within the fowl family.
