Photo of the Day: An afternoon glide

ELIZABETH Vickers captured this pelican flying low along Lennox Head beach on Wednesday after the rain.

"One of my favourite birds ever!" she wrote.

It was a tight competition yesterday, with only Elizabeth's photo and a photo by Kerri Nelson, taken while horseriding on Patchs Beach.

However Elizabeth's photo took 53% of the vote to become today's Photo of the Day.

Photo of the Day celebrates the beauty of the Northern Rivers and the talent of its people.

As well as appearing here, it is published on page 2 of our print edition and appears as the cover image on our Facebook page.
