Bright, sunny, cooler days and the pelicans can be seen flying in formation, dive bombing into the ocean, or strutting their stuff. This pelican knew he/she was a star. Turning this way and that, but holding the pose long enough for onlookers to whip out their smartphones and snap a shot. I’d photographed ‘him’ last year, and this year he appeared more colorful. So maybe it wasn’t ‘him’! Same behavior though and I enjoyed capturing ‘him’ with paint.
