Photo of the week: Pelicans gone wild

-A A +A

A photo by Barry Cox

  Barry Cox has contributed the first Photo of the Week of the summer, even though he got the shot of these two feisty birds in the spring.  Barry has been a great contributor to the Bulletin's sports pages, providing great shots of football, wrestling, track and auto racing.  Here, he joined in the fun of spring break.  But, rather than shooting some tawdry scene, he opted for a nice nature shot.  In his words:  "I took the picture of the two Brown Pelicans when I went to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico in late April.  They were competing with other pelicans and seagulls for the fish near the ocean shore.  The one with the fish (on the right) had to flip it around several times to get it situated properly in his mouth, and every time he did he would have other pelicans trying to get it from him.  They were all gathered where the local fishermen dock to bring their catch of the day in, near a small pier."  Send us your best sports or nature shots:  sports@bedfordbulletin.com
