PORT ORANGE, Fla. -- On the Dunlawton Causeway -- a brown pelican comes in for a landing on what's left of the pilings after Matthew wiped out the fishing pier -- its wings spread as it glides through the air. 

Since he lives near the Atlantic Ocean, amateur photographer Steve Bibeault enjoys taking pictures of scenic wildwife, especially birds.

His favorite birds are the brown pelicans with their large wingspans, which they use to glide along the surf in search of fish below. 

"The image was shot "about 50-60 yards out, I would guess," photographer Steve Bibeault told Headline Surfer. The image was used as the lead picture in a Headline Surfer story photo-spread here.
