    So I was wandering around innocently at Palm Beach today when all of a sudden a pelican came rampaging at me.

    Of course my instinctive reaction was to get a photo... and he started heading towards me at quite a fast pace. (credit to the focus speed for getting it some what correct considering he was moving and I was stumbling backwards).

    As soon as I got a little distance from him he settled down a little a posed for photos.

    There's actually quite a few pelicans around Sydney's northern beachs - usually around the Narabeen and further north though. Sometimes around street lamps you'll see large white splatter on the ground below them. It took me a while to realise it wasn't paint splatter but a lot of pelican poop splatter from them perching above street lamps. It's a dangerous thing to walk under if you see white stuff on the ground.

    Frisky fellows they are.

    I did some pelicans at the zoo, they were very obliging:

    My Pelican at the zoo looked as fed up with the rain as I did.
