Old Guy Pelican

I’ve been away from this Blog for a while. I was preparing for and then participating in our 20 year anniversary trip to the panhandle of Florida. While on vacation, I wasn’t able to capture as many images as I had expected – mostly due to an outrageous hotel issue that isn’t worth mentioning.

However, Robert and I did get the chance to travel down the exceedingly long Pier at Pensacola Beach, Florida where I encountered a big, old bird. Just as we were walking past this Brown Pelican, a woman who had been fishing off the pier, approached him. “Here, you go Old Man,” she said as she offered him a fish. I got the sense that this bird was well known by the locals.

I didn’t have my camera ready, so these are not the best shots, and the late afternoon sun was back-lighting the bird. But, he seemed like an old soul worthy of sharing.
