Great shot! Florida looks mighty inviting right now (as I get ready to pull on clothes and sit under a tree at 26 degrees).

Thank you all for your comments. My husband was sitting on the back of the boat when the pelican flew in. He didn't notice at the time and got quite a shock when he turned around and saw a bird that was taller standing than my husband was tall sitting.

It occurs to me that that 26 degrees must be Celsius which is 78.8 degrees F. Otherwise, that's too cold to be sitting under a tree.
