Default Don't eat with your mouth open.

Remember how moms always taught the kids not to chew food with their mouth open? Looks like this juvenile Pelican forgot his manners.

E-3 and 50-200mm

I said "don't chew with your mouth open" and it goes head first or it'll stick.

Nice set Steven.

Hi Ken and James. Thanks for looking and commenting. Pelicans are such fun birds to photograph.

Thank you very much Marcelo, Harj, and Fred.

(Fred: you are right, they can hold a lot in that big pouch under their top beak, and it can stretch out huge. Often when they come up from a dive for food, the pouch is full of both water and fish. I might have a shot of something like that, I'll see if I can find one and post it sometime.)
