Pelicans 2

By ellavr
Pelican pelican, fits more in its beak than it's belly can!

Again sorry for the little verse, I have to say that every time I see a pelican, though if I continue with this series I might stop!!

Anyway, here is more of the group of pelicans who hang out off the Esplanade at Cairns (thats Far North Queensland or as I like to call it, Home!). I have no idea what this weird beak behaviour was but it looked like they were eating air! They all did it for a while and then they flew off one by one!

I had a rare half hour on my own so rushed down and sat and looked at them and took some photos. I have a few more, so hope that you like them.

Any comments very welcome, good or bad!

Great shot ella, i do not understand why your last shot gets more than this because this is really a great photo.
How did the photo of them flying away turn out by the way?
best wishes
