The flight path of a pelican flapping madly away on the fabulous Gold Coast in the early morning light. They are wonderful. Hey, ho. Queensland, Australia.
Hey, ho, which one of you pelicans lost a feather? If you did, come and get it! I want a reward and I want it in fish, not cash. Hooray, Queensland, Australia.
A silhouette I snapped of a backlit pelican roosting on a post in the afternoon sun on the Gold Coast. If it continues to sit in the sun all day, it will end up looking like a roast on a post. Hooray. Queensland, Australia.
A picture I snapped after sunrise on the shortest day of the year. The winter solstice (or hibernal solstice), also known as midwinter, is an astronomical phenomenon marking the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year. The axial tilt of Earth and gyroscopic effects of its daily rotation mean that the two opposite points in the sky to which the Earth’s axis of rotation points (axial precession) change very slowly (making a complete circle approximately every 26,000 years). As the Earth follows its orbit around the Sun, the polar hemisphere that faced away from the sun, experiencing winter, will, in half a year, face towards the sun and experience summer. This is because the two hemispheres face opposite directions along Earth’s axis, and so as one polar hemisphere experiences winter, the other experiences summer. Hope you understand all that. Queensland, Australia.
Wash your face Geoffrey, with the Solvol, Geoffrey. Snapped this grubby-faced pelican on the Gold Coast. Queensland, Australia.
A different angle of a pelican I snapped on the Gold Coast, Australia.
This big pelican is a picture I snapped as it flew into roost on a street light the Gold Coast, Australia. You beauty.
The pelican of the day is mixing it up with a few gull in the skies over the Gold Coast. Hey, ho. Queensland, Australia.
Oh, what a mouth, what a north and south, blimey what a mouth he’s got. Hooray, you beauty. Gold Coast, Australia. Love it.
As I’d invaded this pelican’s space, is it possible that I made it sweat and perked the moon glow in its eye. Hooray, what a bloody beauty. Queensland, Australia.
