I know I have an over-abundance of pelican posts...but I had a very friendly encounter the other day. This series of photos shows a pelican who left her/his group to come and... hmm... I'd like to think s/he came to check me out a bit closer, but maybe s/he was guarding something! Whatever he was doing, s/he came right up close to me, which was quite exciting! Love my brushes with nature.
