Looks Like Somebody Got New Skis
Earlier this week a brown pelican came gliding down into the salt marsh with his water skis fully deployed for a smooth arrival.
This pelican may need a little more practice with those skis because as is often the case when trying out new sports equipment, you end up falling right on your face.
The big guy did end up picking himself up out of the water and continuing along as if nothing happened. But isn’t that pretty much what we would all do?! 🙂
Sempre stupende le tue foto, sono eccezionali!!
Grazie Pat , sono felice ti è piaciuto queste foto Pelican ! 🙂
That’s probably how i would ski too.
Ha ha, likewise! Thanks for looking!
What a great face plant!
Oh wow, ‘face plant’ is a much better title for this post than what I came up with! Thanks for checking these out.
Oh, the humiliation! Let’s hope nobody important was watching. (Except you, of course, Phil!)
It is a bit humiliating, and I’m sorry (well not really) I was there to see it. 🙂
Haha Wonderful! Not really nice to take pictures of someone falling 😀
I know. I feel so ashamed of myself and promise to never… well, who am I kidding?! It will probably happen again. 🙂
Better so 😉 Would be a shame if you would not continue!
Made me smile, a new style he is trying 🙂 Beautiful Thank you dear Phil, Love, nia
I’m happy this made you smile Nia and it may be a new style but think it still needs work. 🙂
Whoops!! That would be me too. 😀
Ha ha, likewise!
I know better then to even try that move, especially in public. 🙂
Priceless! Poor guy overshot his landing. I keep coming back to these and laugh every time. Shame on me but it is so funny.
A little more finesse at the end is all that’s needed!
Such great pictures, I love Pelicans and your pics capture them in action, thanks Phil
