Resident of Mykonos Town

By fandangofandingo
A pelican who lives in the back alleys of Mykonos town. There are two of them, both very tame. I sat quite near and it didn't worry about me at all. It was a bit disconcerting seeing them open their large bills, with the stretchy lower halves, when i was so near but fascinating too. They draw quite a crowd and when they feel like a snack they walk into the nearest bar, through the outside seating area and to the kitchen much to the amusement of onlookers. I like this shot of the inside of the bill and mouth because I also managed to get the catchlight in the eye.
