I did not know they came in different colours? I did not know they had golden heads?

Is this true?

He's giving you the eye because you're getting too close.

Do blonde's have more fun? This might be a brown pelican but that tuft on top sure looks sun streaked to me.

A great shot. He is watching you intently

@ Brattcat - I think this one stopped in at the salon down the street and had a little dye job...

@ Julie - There are a few variations among the Brown Pelicans...this is a nice one, I think. But they are pests in some ways. They'll take fish right out of your hand; or your bait bucket!

great capture. It is amazing how close you can get and they still pose for you. I am glad you enjoyed the Chihuly Saffron Tower on my site for theme day. I have a daytime photo of the Saffron Tower up today. Thanks for your comments.

Never seen a brown pelican before - only the white ones in Australia
