The words that come to mind when I look at this bird are “confident” and “well fed.” The pelican’s stance is one that conveys comfort in, and possibly even enjoyment of, being close to a human with a camera. It lives in a preserve where it is protected and has ample food. Sure, the bird could fly away. But it didn’t!
Thank you, Sherry!
This is a wonderful photograph.
Thank you, Jessica!

Cheeky and loyal is my viee…look at the love in that eye! 💋 Do you remember ‘Storm Boy’?
My fave bird, along with the magpie.
I can see cheeky! I hadn’t heard of Storm Boy, but I checked it out. I looks like a nice story.

Definitely a charmer!
Gorgeous photo too!
It almost looks painted as opposed to a photo. Nice looking pelican.
My husband said the same thing about it looking like a painting. I think it was the early morning light. Thank you, Emilio!
Love a good pelican shot…they are such fabulous birds, until they start walking and then they look almost drunk 🙂
This one was super and stayed in one spot 😊.
Perfect model 😁

Great photo, also nice to see a little of the background. And marvelous creatures! Saw another species of Pelicans in Cairns, great to see these big beauties.
Indeed a beauty and the friendliest pelican ever 😊.
