Are you sure that's a pelican? Does the mouth/gullet shrink back when in flight?

Awww look how cute he is!! I love pelicans. They are sort of a homely looking bird, but they are so sweet natured. They never try to eat your food and usually just coast lazily down the beach.
Great, now I'm thinking about coasting lazily on the beach. I guess that's not such a bad thing to be fantasizing about at work...

I like the way you caught the curve of the wing. Nice!

Have a great weekend!
