A pelican sort of crush ...

There looks like there is some pelican love talk going on between these two.  
What do you think?

We've been having remarkable weather down here in Anna Maria, 
but we will be returning soon to Philly and it always makes me a bit sad to leave such beauty.

 As you can tell by this post, I'm still crushin' on the pelicans.  I don't know why it had taken me so long to take notice of their beauty.  Some might disagree with the word "beauty" in the same sentence with 'pelican' ... but, as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I love capturing them in the many different poses they seem to take.
Sometimes eyeing you as you come near.

And other times ignoring you and tending to the important task of preening
or just chillin'.

Their size always amazes me from this compact model ....

To their outstretched wings reaching to over six feet.

I'll miss them when I leave.

But then ... I can always count on them being there when I return.

By the way, I loved reading all your comments from
my last post on how you restore yourselves.
It's a joy to get a glimpse of what
nourishes each of you who stop by.
Thank you.
