Pelican Close-up

Tried to go to Bolivar Flats again last Sunday after a very successful trip on Sat.  Should have known better as it’s difficult to get two good days in a row at one location.  That turned out to be the case as it was too windy, which covered up most of the sandbars and kept the birds from being out where I could reach them.  Headed back across the ferry and found this Brown Pelican just hanging out.  Got some good eye contact as he was probably wondering what I was doing.
