This pelican was sitting near the shrimp boats waiting to see what came in!

Beautifully captured Elaine, they always fascinate me and when we were in Florida 20 odd years ago I was thrilled to see them in the wild

@Doug: I was so excited to see the pelicans close up! In Maryland, they fly along the shore but I never see them land near fishing boats or piers.
