Hop...skip and a jump

By ColleenA
I loved watching the Pelicans on the Murray river. There the literally thousands of them along the 500km of river we cruised along. They are very graceful coming in to land but a frantic dash to take off.

Great sequence, Colleen 👍 They seem rather like swans, in not being very graceful trying to take off! 😀

Superb sequence Colleen, they are quite unusual birds really. I have only ever seen them in Zoo’s but would love to see them in the wild
