. . . his beak can hold more than his belly can!
He can hold in his beak enough food for a week,
But I do wish I knew how the hell he can.
I learned this from my daddy when I was a child. I’m not sure where it originated, but since he was a good Christian man, I’d never heard the second stanza. Now that I think about it, I never in my whole life heard my him say one “ugly” word–not even Hell.
I have been trying to photograph this pelican in the bayou for over a week, but every time I walked toward the bank, it flew away. So I had to resort to shooting from my vehicle, and forgot one of the basic rules of using a zoom – STEADY STEADY STEADY. I was in such a hurry to get a few shots, that I failed to rest my arm on something steady. So, I apologize for the poor photo quality.
