I was a attacked by an angry pelican over the weekend. If it wasn’t for my quick reflexes and keen eye, I could have been eaten. Maybe the pelican mistook me for a groper. It got so close to me, its beak scratched my lens hood. However, I thought later, if the pelican did eat me, because I just eaten a load of chilli and garlic, it would have quickly spat me out.
