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.
