It was hiding behind a park bench and didn't see me right away. I was able to grab the photo as it decided to swim back out into the lake.

The way its wings are raised, it looks like getting ready for take off.

It did eventually do that. Looked a bit like an airplane, started off swimming really fast then lifted up its wings and flew.

Well, don't tell him. He might want his cut.

Nice very beautiful pelican. Lucky how they can swim in the water and not worry about anything.
