Brown pelicans

Brown pelicans fishing in the Mexican Gulf, off Sanibel Island and Sarasota, Florida.  Unlike the much larger white pelicans, browns are master divers who spot their prey from the sky and rarely miss a catch.  One particular bird attracted a passing gull who insisted on trying, unsuccessfully, to relieve it of at least part of its meal.
