Here a pelican, there a pelican, everywhere a pelican

As you have noticed with my last several posts, I'm still infatuated with the pelicans. 
Poop and all!
And I'll try to make this post the last one of pelicans for at least a few days.
For some of these shots, I was chased off by a loading dock crew.
(Not the dock above, that's the Rod and Reel Pier. )
I guess I wasn't suppose to be there.
Yep ... missed that sign.
Oh well .... I have short term memory problems.
It'll probably happen again.

The pelicans never cease to amaze me with their grace in the air ...

 and the beauty of their summer colors.

I have gotten so that I can at least identify the elders from the teens ...

 ... like these three bad boys looking for trouble.

They always amaze me how they can fold themselves up ...

... from a wingspan over 7 feet ...

 ... to this sleeping pose.

Yep, I love pelicans.

Almost as much as the evening sunsets!

Hope you've had an awesome weekend.
Ours was filled with a little canoeing that I'll share tomorrow.

In the meantime, I hope to be dropping in at your places this evening
and see what you've been up to!

Later, my friends,
