Come dance with me

Birds Photos Contest Entry 
Took this photo of the pelican on the Camden Haven River, in Laurieton, NSW. Australia. Fishermen use the river and if lucky enough to catch a fish , they clean and scale on the wooden tables provided in the area. They throw the discarded parts to the pelicans, who more often than not, are waiting there in anticipation ... They love these tasty treats.. The pelicans have become quite friendly and waddle up to you to see if you are about to offer them some food. On one occasion I had a pelican follow me along the grassy banks of the river for over 15 minutes while I was taking photos.. So I turned around and took his photo.. from then on, he started to pose for me.. and continued following me as I took more shots along the way. Thanks for sharing my pelican story and my photo. cheers mel
