The Brief Pelican

We were walking by the bay near our house and we saw two beautiful birds gliding gracefully into the water...we realized they were two Orange Pelicans...

Watching their movements was like poetry in all too brief a minute they flew away...yet my Nokia E71 captured a glimpse of their flight...

Did you know that in medieval Europe...the pelican was thought to be particularly attentive to her young, to the point of providing her own blood when no other food was available....I didn't!

Hope you have a wonderfully relaxed weekend..
