Photo a Day 28 - Pelicans

This Wednesday I am linking with both "Wild Bird Wednesday" and "Outdoor Wednesday".

These photos were taken on a holiday on Kangaroo Island in South Australia.  Kangaroo Island is Australia's third largest offshore island and is an untouched gem. It teems with wildlife, conservation parks, wineries, fishing opportunities, gourmet food outlets and local businesses.

We visited some years ago when I took these shots, but we have been back a number of times for holidays and we can't recommend it too highly.

This shot was taken probably 30 years ago when one of the locals used to visit this isolated beach each day to feed the pelicans and seagulls with left over  bait fish. I don't think this still happens. The old fellow would be long gone.

These next photos were taken at a spot called Remarkable Rocks, again on KI

The cliffs around thew island provide a myriad of photo opportunities and the attractions are numerous. Check out the link above and do consider visiting this delightful island if ever you are in Adelaide.

  4. beautiful birds those pelicans. And what a cool rock :)

  5. Any other time the pelicans would have totally captured my attention but totally love that rock.

  6. One sure can put on an imagination look for the first gigantic rock. He looks like a Monster ready to eat the little rock below.
