The One About The Pelican

While I was at the Flamingo checking out the flamingos, I also came across this jaunty looking fellow.

I've always liked pelicans.  Not overly sure why - I think its because they are so majestically absurd, kinda like giraffes.

I spent a few minutes watching this fellow mug for the camera - at least it seemed like he was showing off, as he kept doing this rather graceful bow for whoever stopped long enough to notice him.

I have always tried to capture pictures of pelicans in the wild, so it was nice to spend some time up close to one.  However it feels like cheating to say I finally got good pictures, so my quest for good wild pelican pictures will continue.

In the mean time, these photos will have to do.
