For several years now an amateur radio acquaintance, Alan Koch, has been sending me the occasional wildlife or outdoors photo. His photography is always great and worth a few moments of contemplation. The current photo is of a brown pelican, a bird I’ve spent many an hour watching while sitting on or near a body of salt water with a fishing pole in my hand. Watching a flock of pelicans gracefully skim the surface of the water or make their characteristic plunge into the water in chase of food, is a sight that doesn’t get old. Thanks Alan.
