Pelicans do not have automatic headlights.


I imagine they must hit a lot of deer.

I can’t remember if this is a manatee head or a deserted island with two mysterious caves that contain the untouched wealth of an ancient civilization along with a series of three magical guardians of increasing strength, seven traps, and over one hundred bodies of past adventurers.

When I was reading about ospreys a few years ago, I ran across several stories about how, unlike other birds of prey, the osprey’s talons are strongly curved, making it easier to them to catch fish. The tradeoff, however, is that if they catch too large of a fish, they can pulled under the water by the weight of their prey. This happens most often to the young ones, and can make them drown before they get to adulthood.


I have never gotten a photo of this behavior, of course, as I usually do not bring my underwater camera with me when I’m shooting birds.
