Flight of the Pelican

One of the pleasures of walking along the shore in central California is seeing pelicans. There are often great flocks of them, and to British eyes this is a thing of excess and exoticism.

I caught this one flying in San Francisco Bay, just to the west of Alcatraz Island. There’s a pleasant symmetry to that – “alcatraz” is the Spanish for “pelican”.

If you want to get this view of the Parliament buildings in London, you’ll need to ride the London Eye.
