Pelican Picture Posing

The Pelican is the Louisiana state bird. You would think they would appreciate such an official designation, but actually all they think about all day is fish, catching and eating fish. I suppose that's all they need to think about, until they run into some sort of oil slick.

Taking a picture of a pelican that has been rescued by a local animal welfare group, Clearwater Sanctuary, is an interesting challenge, especially when you have special guests coming in to pose with the pelican.

So here are a few photographs of the pelican posing with some of his friends. Getting him to smile was not easy.
