This evening I stopped by the Gulf State Park Pier to get photographs of the sunset. Looking down the beach I noticed several pelicans and gulls diving for fish. I quickly made my way to the birds and was treated to a great show. Pelicans look awkward with their large bills and big webbed feet but they are graceful hunters. Laughing and ring-billed gulls were also on hand, and they even rode piggy back on top of the pelicans. I just wish I had brought my rod and reel to see what was pushing the bait fish to the top of the water.
