We encountered this lovely fellow on our walk yesterday through “Coastal Strand Trail”. He was standing on the small dock overlooking the river. It really looked like he was debating whether or not to go for a swim but stayed on the dock long enough for us to snap a few shots of him.
The posted sign showed “Alligators No Swimming”. He wasn’t really sure whether we were the threat or the gators. This was a big decision for Pelly Pelican. What would he do next?
Still looking but his wings showed the decision was made and he was going to go for it. Graceful he wasn’t. He tripped over the ledge and ended up doing a resounding belly flop into the water.
Have a nice “trip” Pelly Pelican.
