Pelican Games by taffy

Pelican Games

Perhaps this is evidence of too much time on my hands coupled with avoidance behavior and not being that mobile. Participating pelicans are from our early March trip to Los Cabos, Mexico in a different lifetime and world. Thank you, pelicans.
Cute sequence of collage images! I’ve never seen pelicans playing leap frog.

Ha - made me laugh! Nice cartoon series. How much we took for granted without even giving it a thought.

nice capture Taffy!

This is awesome. So cute!

Haha, Paying attention, while waiting for that perfect nature shot gives you lots of time to watch animal behaviour that I am sure many birdwatchers miss.
I have spent hours at times waiting for something to appear in the right place with the right light without something else being in the way.
While I am sitting still and waiting, they wander in and go oh there's an A & B, a D, FH and two Ps oh and several R, S, T s then they've gone. They saw the birds, but they weren't observing the behaviour. You were. I have always been in to nature and birds in particular, but have learned so much more about their actual lives by just sitting and watching and waiting. Brilliant observation. Fav

I'm laughing hysterically as I read this and think, "Taffy, you've got too much time on your hands!" but it truly is funny...and well captured! Do you think we're all getting a little stir crazy?

@tosee @dide @vignouse @ukandie1 @Weezilou Yay -- that was my goal! Bring a smile to folks faces especially now. I literally was going through old files trying to find something to create that was funny. You've made my day with your comments!

@markp Thanks for the fav, Mark, and for such a thoughtful response to the images. You are so right -- photographers have the joy of seeing the behavior, not just the creature.

I just about wet my pants laughing. Just what I needed. How is your ankle?

@jgpittenger Glad to have entertained!! Each day I'm improving and my doctor said I should be okay in about 2 weeks. Today I shifted from using the walker in the condo to using a walking stick which was a big step. At least most of the pain has subsided to a manageable level. Just such a dumb thing to have done.
March 27th, 2020  
Oh what fun!
March 27th, 2020  
LOL- you’re having too much fun here

Made me laugh out loud! Well done, this is a great bit of fun. Hope the pain is easing off.
PS I tagged you in Louise's image as she is looking for help for a night time sky shot tonight. If you pick this up, she'd be grateful for any tips!

This is so much fun Taffy - thanks for producing it and sharing it with us. Anything that brings a smile to a face is very much appreciated at the moment. :0
March 29th, 2020  
such fun. Perhaps you have hours ahead finding unused footage to entertain us with? The important thing is, stay well, my friend.
March 29th, 2020  
@helenhall Many thanks for the kind wishes. And for the good idea. It's a fun way to peruse older shots -- for their comic potential rather than composition!
March 30th, 2020  
Love it! We need all lightness and humor now.
March 30th, 2020  
Haha, great shots
March 31st, 2020
