A heavy gathering

Captured in the wetlands adjacent to Mawson Lakes several hours ago, these were just a few of the 19 or 20 Pelicans gathered here preening themselves or just "hanging around".  In their midst were ducks, seagulls, stilts and terns, all happily mingling together - none intimidated by the size of their larger friends.

Such splendidly absurd birds! I'm jealous: we have nothing like them over here.

These pelicans are elegant! Their beak is smaller than the ones we see here. Wishing you a great weekend!
