I mentioned last week, I have a weakness for pelicans. On Friday, while my son and I were at the beach, I snapped these photos with my point and shoot.
This huge pelican was watching the woman fish. Apparently, he was feeling too lazy to go dive for his own food. Whenever she caught a fish too small to keep, she'd toss it to him instead of throwing it back in the water. The pelican, of course, would gobble it down whole, in seconds flat.
He was quite pleased with the arrangement.
A group of tourists came by and kept bothering him. He took off in flight, circling the pier. The tourists left and a minute later he was right back in his usual spot.
