Fisherman's Wharf - Monterey
These three pelicans were hanging out on the pier next to the whale watching boat. When we returned from the trip, they were still there. Father took lots of pictures. Have you ever been up close and personal to a Pelican? Me neither. They actually are quite beautiful - in their own way.
Right about this point, we are both telling James to back off. I'm expecting him to get pecked at any moment. Father quits shooting for the moment and misses the magic shot. See the pelican with his wings spread. He turned around very quickly.
What other kid do you know whose been slapped in the face by a Pelican.
How wonderfully peaceful looking! I love how cool it looks too. Fun. Thanx for sharing.ReplyDelete
Slapped in the face? Too funny!ReplyDelete
I think those pelicans are pretty cool and you're right who can say they've been slapped by a pelican?ReplyDelete
Love those photos!
I love the story these photos tell!ReplyDelete
Looks like fun, thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Wow!! How cool (well, I'm sure the slap wasn't that much fun). I have never seen a pelican that close up.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos! And I'm sure not too many other people have had such an encounter with a pelican!ReplyDelete
