Pelican Alight

Pelican Alight

As the sun sinks behind clouds and beyond warm Gulf Stream waters, a brown pelican alights on a mooring pole, ready to join one camera-wielding human in relaxed appreciation of another wonderful Florida Keys sunset. The flying fish gulper had been resting there, departed for a several minutes, then returned, perhaps realizing like me that this was a great place to simply sit down and enjoy the spectacle before turning in for the night.
