No Humans Allowed Beyond this Point

Six word story captures the attitudes these pelicans had toward me as I approached the pier. They gathered together, sauntered to the edge, looked at me, and the middle one kept reaching out to bite me! So, we reached detente -- I could take their photo, but could not enter the pier!
