Skippy the Pelican

I photographed this pelican on Isla Mujeres on the dock near the turtle farm. All he wanted to do was sit on the post at the end of the pier. However, the kids would run out to the edge of the pier which made him nervous and he would jump into the little harbor and wait until they left. He would then skip along the water and fly back up to his post. I saw him do this a few times before I finally got a picture of him skipping on the water.
