Default Betcha can't do this!

Walking on the beach a couple days ago I spotted this pelican grooming himself. He wasn't at all bothered as I walked past about 10 feet away.

Finally, he seemed satisfied with his appearance. Maybe he had a date. ;-)

Meanwhile, it was dinnertime for this little guy. Wow! He was really fast. I needed a faster shutter speed.

Haha, great series Walter. Detail in the feathers is fantastic.
And you are right, I can't do that (don't think I want to either)!

Must be really satisfying to be able to reach all your itchy spots...
