  2. They're pretty cool creatures, aren't they? I have a liking for the character of pelicans and their squadron habits. I'll write some more about the inlet, it was all I could do tonight to upload these pics of the last few days ...
    Thanks for your comments!

  5. Wow, who saw who first? Did they know that you in your boat meant food? Pelicans are such wonder-filled beings! Bootalang was one Noongar word for them. Don't know what that words means. Angels... with great appetites...?? :) Thanks for these photos.

  6. Thanks for your comments and enjoying the pelicans! Yes, Tim, they know where the fish are. It's quite common to see them soar in like that and skid to a halt right by the boat. just, normally, I have fishy, wet gloves on and can't find my phone camera. this morning I couldn't pass up the chance.

  7. Ah..beautiful!

    Pelicans are about piety and a sense of buoyancy or optimism, riding the ups and downs...that kind of thing... or so I've read.

    Look like they make handsome companions en masse!

  8. I think the buoyancy and optimism is spot on, Sontag, and perhaps the piety comes from their supercilious looks. I always wonder which library book I've forgotten or lost under the couch, when I look into their eyes.
