Here comes that pesky photographer again!
This tribe of Pelicans just wanted to be left alone, and do their own thing.
The town of Tea Gardens appear to have an affinity with these big birds, as can be seen by the two following images! One Pelican is the mascot on the police station, while the other one appears to be on paramedic duty at the ambulance station!

Yes I think they do like their Pelicans. LOL. Great find and captures, John. Like the reflection on the top one.

Awesome pelican tribe there, John! They look kind of prehistoric to me.

John just be careful when they take flight. They can drop a nasty bomb shell. :<(
