Back to the wharf. This guy just sat there and let people come take his picture -- no fear of humans whatsoever. I almost expected him to have his partner pass the hat for tips.

Amazing colours in this bird. The pelicans over here are all B&W with a light pink beak, black eyes and a bright yellow ring around the eye. I have never seen a pelican this colour. Brilliant shot to get such detail in the feathers and eye.
