Pelicans Away

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

Thanks to all you who have looked at my pelicans before. This series was taken on the Esplanade in Cairns in April as I had a few minutes on my own while on holiday. These are really marvellous birds, big and funny looking and yet so graceful in the air. I have only one more of these after this so I hope that you like them.
