Will the food be enough for everybody? or some of them on the photo are only waiting to take pictures?...:)

Cheers, Alex

Only the pelicans got food, but the photographers got plenty of pictures. I was amused at the way the two groups mixed so casually.

Cheers, Marilyn

Hello Marylin , Le pélican juste à côté de l'homme à la casquette semble lui aussi avoir les mains dans les poches , très drôle! The pelican next to the man in the cap seems to have hands in pockets too , very funny! Greeting , Pascal

I hadn't noticed, Pascal, mais il est vrai! Merci! Greetings, Marilyn

He he he he he! A great one. Pelican to man: When were they suppose to be here, do you know?

I also love the girl with the camera showing that there's something much more interresting to take pictures of than the pelicans.

Thanks, Roger. I like the caption!!

Quesqu'ils regardent tous?

what do they look at all?

Marilyn Whiteley on October 21, 2007

They are looking at the man who has a bucket of fish. He will talk to the people before he shares the food with the pelicans. The pelicans have to wait!

Kind of like listening to the gospel before getting the free meal? Wonderful shot!

I love the comparison, Nawitka!! Thanks.

"Dearly beloved ... "

"Amen, brother! When do we get to the loaves and fishes part?"

Better and better!

Now I know how Ryan feels when he sees my cows standing still and posing. ;)

I don't suppose you give them handouts, too ... ?

Lilypon on October 23, 2007

:D Hmmmmmmmmmm now there's an idea! :D

Very witty, Marilyn. It looks like both pelicans and people standing waiting for a show, and acrobat or a rock concert or something. I'm just waiting for a conversation to break out between the pelican in profile and the fellow with the hat on the left.

Marilyn Whiteley on November 8, 2007

Thanks, Kent. I have to admit that I was so absorbed in the moment when I took the shot that I didn't realize how amusing it would be! Yes, they'll start talking any minute now.

Increible.Very nice and interesting shot. Saludos from Spain. Epi

Thanks, Epi. The pelicans and the people certainly seem to mix easily, don't they! Greetings, Marilyn
