American White Pelican plays in the water

I took the long way home from work one day hoping to happen across something photo worthy and I did. A small pod of Pelicans was hanging out on a pond and provided some nice photo ops (until someone using a cell phone camera insisted on walking right up to them).

The pelicans were being quite animated spending a lot of time preening. They also exhibited a behavior I hadn’t seen before where they would slap their wings on the water then dunk themselves under. Here, one of them is seen as they slapped on the water.
