They'd been catching black-fish (the fishermen that is), and apparently the pelicans keep a vigil for this activity to take place before they pack up and head for home. I'd have loved to get some snaps of them flying in and skidding on the water like they do, but with my point and shoot only, sun on the screen, and me trying to 'find' them in it quickly; no good captures. Maybe I'll go back another day just to try and achieve this with my "other" camera.
So with a combination of late afternoon sun, sharp contrasting shadows and some over-exposure, here's the best of them to share for World Bird Wednesday.
