Pelican Pose 1
Pelicans are a surprising bird to watch. They can be graceful and awkward at the same time. They are oddly proportioned and have large bills as if the Cyrano De Bird-gerac. Cyrano once said (with slight alteration) "A large beak is the mark of a witty, courteous, affable, generous and liberal pelican." Some also call them Gooney, Boobies, or Dodo bird - even Loony. They're not. On the other side, in flight, they are a graceful swan, a flying sailboat, and a military sleek, prehistoric, update attack machine.
