This morning on the Gold Coast I thought there could have been a pelican trainer further upstream who’d spotted me taking a snap of the sunrise, and sent the pelicans flying off in a frenzy to improve my picture. What a cracker. (There were four pelicans, but one of them blended in with the dark background). Queensland, Australia.
Just for a bit of fun I pointed my 600mm lens at the early morning bright (but dullish) light on the Gold Coast and I scanned the horizon in the hope something may happen. I was pleased as punch when three pelicans swan past in formation. Hooray, for me. Queensland, Australia.
“You call that flying,” said one pelican to the other. Yep, that’s what it said alright. Yesterday was another smashing day the the fabulous Gold Coast. Yippee. Queensland, Australia.
Storm clouds forming over the Gold Coast nearly engulfing these two pelicans. Queensland, Australia.
Three old buddies meet up for a feed of fish on the Gold Coast. So I have an exclusive and rare picture of Roger Pelican, Trevor Pelican and Bruce Pelican. Yah, ho, hey. Queensland, Australia.
Yep, you should have seen the fish the pelicans caught yesterday: Where there are people fishing, you will always find a few pelicans on standby ready to steal some fish – especially on wonderful Stradbroke ‘Straddie’ Island. Queensland, Australia.
Hey, you, the lovely lady with the tattoo, quick, turn around, take a look behind you! I snapped this image on the Gold Coast Broadwater, Queensland, Australia.
Pelicans blast-off and racing to another river for a feed of fish. What a wonderful sight on the Gold Coast, Australia. Hooray.
Just when a few people told me they were “sick of (my) pelican pictures”, I snapped this bunch of hungry pelicans in a bun fight over a fish. And it looks as through the fish is about to be filleted. But where’s the chips? The seagulls ate those. I supplied the salad and crusty bread. You beauty. Gold Coast, Australia.
And there they go – pelicans flapping across the sky in front of the late afternoon sun on the Gold Coast, Australia. You little beauty. What a sight.
