This Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) was doing some strange stretching exercises as I went by. Just had to get some shots.

#1 - One legged wing stretch.

As another Downunder-er you should know that all Aussie Pelicans are enrolled in the Peli-Pilates daily exercise regime :)
They even occasionally pop into the water and swim too - they train the Aussie Olympic swimming team ready for the paddle-like-mad events

Cheers Phil. I wish I could bend like that. Life could be so much different !

Pelicans are strange birds. Well shot.
Thanks David, I agree, they are a weird bird and although they are huge they seem to have a real gentleness about them.

Unusual captures, well done!
Cheers John. I'm happy that I saw this weird thing going on, I've never seen it before. I appreciate your comment.
Love the little work out story line and the images are not to shabby ether , nice one.
Thanks Stephen. They say a picture paints a thousand words, but I like to add a few of them to tell my side of the story :)
