Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

This week Michelle has asked us to share an image inspired by dinnertime.

“Ah!” I thought, “Pelicans!”

IMG_7058

Meet the handsome Percival Pelican!

IMG_7061

“FISH!” squawked Percival!

His lady love Percilina Pelican came to join him…..

IMG_7069

Percilina Pelican knew that once Percival got this demanding, with wide open beak, fish would soon be coming his way!

IMG_7077

Percival was not much of a gent and snaffled the fish up straight away! Percilina could only look on and hope that now she was in front, it would be her turn next!

IMG_7082

Percilina was delighted when she felt the gentle thud of the fish landing in her deeply elastic bottom beak!

Come back tomorrow to see what happens when Percival and Percilina both go for the same fish!

That’s All!

See Ya xx

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

“This week show us something that helps you stay positive, hopeful and optimistic regardless of what life (and the weather!) throws your way.”

So there’s the challenge!

Watching wildlife definitely keeps my humour good and my optimism about life high!

I’d like you to meet Peyton Pelican and his family!

IMG_6344

Peyton Pelican’s the one at the back
The one with slightly strange hair!
He and his family are all a bit bored
They want to go out, but where?

They soon decide to go for a swim

Over on the lake

Peyton goes first and off he flies

Oh it’s frozen….for goodness sake!

IMG_6321

IMG_6323

Peyton’s alarmed and steadies himself

And sits for a moment in thought

How the heck can he tackle this

When it’s almost impossible to walk

IMG_6327

He inches himself towards the water

Whilst feeling a bit of a fool

Then the wind begins to blow

His hair-oh life can be cruel!

IMG_6331

Using the wind’s momentum

And forgetting his very strange look

Peyton hauls himself up to his feet

To the water by hook or by crook!

IMG_6334

IMG_6340

And when he gets back he puffs out his chest

 He fluffles and fluffles himself

IMG_6354

And then he begins to tell everyone

About the terrible ice shelf!

IMG_6349

‘Listen’ said Payton, “It’s not safe out there

And I’m a very brave pelican!

Every bird both fair and fowl

Must do just what the hell he can!’

Don’t let Peyton know that I got this back shot of him!!…..

IMG_6325

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside 2

What goes on inside the minds of water fowl??

"Psssst!" said Hoodini the Hooded Merganser to the pelicans, "I hear there are rich pickings at the bottom of the lake! We immigrants need to stick together but you never heard it from me….OK?"

“Psssst!” said Hoodini the Hooded Merganser to the pelicans, “I hear there are rich pickings at the bottom of the lake! We immigrants need to stick together but you never heard it from me….OK?”

Great excitement ensued……

Pelooky Pelican and his chum Pelina tried to look casual in their search for rich pickings…….

But things got more and more intense…..

Preeny Pelican joined in having heard the whisper on drakevine!

Then there was a frenzy of way too long and slightly out of control beaks…...
