Pelican Stare Down

 We went to Mom's for her birthday and spent Sunday afternoon under the Sanibal bridge fishing...well actually I was chilling, taking in some sun, breeze and a few pics.  I found a couple piers and while I was looking at them...this pelican swooped down and landed on the end of the pier in front of me.  So I inched out toward him.
He noted me...but didn't seem intimidated...although he kept an eye on me.
After awhile he seemed to get comfortable and settled in.
Then I guess I got a little too close...he extended his neck and stared me down...and showed off that wicked claw on the end of his beak...yikes! So I decided to leave him was a gift to have gotten that close to begin with.

  1. A bit of a model he is. Very nice to get the opportunity to take a couple of closeup pics like this and not have him fly off.


Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts...isn't it fun to share :o)
