Pelican tussle by girlie

Pelican tussle

The Tuncurry pelicans had a battle for a piece of fish thrown to them by a fisherman. At top right, the successful pelican almost stands on its tail to get away; bottom left it jiggles the fish down its throat; bottom right it sails away, trying to look dignified, to digest its meal in private, with the shape of the fish clearly distending its neck and beak.

A real photo story. Very nice collage of all the happenings and each is a beautiful picture.

I used to work in a seafood restaurant on a working harbour and this is a sight we would see daily. They are so lazy that spend more time chasing a bird with a fish than actaully do the hunting!

@robinwarner @pixelchix @shantwin @mandyj92 @omabluebird @pankaj @moonpig @swrws Thanks to everybody! @molizard Thanks for your appreciation. I must admit I like the one top right; it looks like he's running away on top of the water clutching his prize gleefully.
