Cheryl and I had just left St. Pete beach. We were on the bay side with a concrete sea wall and a walkway. People were out walking around and there were some birds hanging out as well. Wait. Cheryl, please pull over. This pelican was resting on the sea wall…omg. I was so excited that I didn’t check the settings on my camera. I just walked right up to him and snapped away. Luckily for me, the aperture mode settings were good enough to capture him.
I’m happy to have had a brief pelican encounter – up close and personal.
