Pelican Panic

I WAS focused on this pelican just in case something happened – you never know what will eventuate. I suppose I was just passing time. As the pelican was looking for a feed, a shag popped up behind it with a fish in its mouth, scaring the hell out of the pelican, which took off like a bat out of hell.

It is usually the other way around. The pelicans watch the shags, and when they  surface with a fish, they usually snap the fish from their mouths.013_6776
