A Wonderful Bird

“A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!”
Dixon Lanier Merritt 1879 – 1972

This guy was a real poser. When I first saw him he was facing me but he slowly turned around showing off his long beak, neck and fine feathers before he flew away.

    Excelentes fotos e definições.
    Fotografia é paixão... é ver aquilo que os outros não enxergam... é prazer e terapia.
