    A very beautiful but wary bird - i've rescued several, and although wary, don't mind lashing out with a bit of biffo :) Did he take off after this? Get any shots of them feeding?

    Yeah they are :)
    I wanted him to take off, but no, he just sat there. Didn't do anything remotely interesting at all really.

    If I wasn't in the middle of taking a timelapse series, I would have got some pretty cool shots of a pelican gliding about 6 inches above the surface of the lake. (of course, had I packed the 400D as well, that would have solved that problem).
