Pelican's are the dorks (or dags - any word that means silly, clumsy and a bit inept) of the bird world. It's why I like them; they are a little bit like me. A regular around water inland and on the coast, they can look serene and noble.
But if you wait a few minutes, they will do some odd. They make me smile and make me laugh.
These images of pelicans were made on the NSW South Coast in the summer of 2021.
