The Pelican Look

I was at a local marina in the Florida Keys called Robbie's. One special feature they have there, is that people can feed the Tarpon. As a result, brown pelicans also gather in hopes of a free meal from tourists. This particular pelican was not pleased with me when he tried to steal a dead fish from my bucket, only to realize it was empty.
