P.P. Squadron.....


Spotted as we were leaving the Perth Zoo yesterday morning after our four monthly fossick around the Leederville Camera Market (purchases: two new portrait filters and a necklace made from an old film spool for Aimee, total spent $20.. lusted after IF I had a spare $600, a limited edition white Pentax with matching white lens!). If you check out the map below you'll see that just as you enter the zoo on the right hand side there is a lake where we spotted this group of six pelicans, I googled and discovered a group of Pelicans were called..a 'squadron', would six Pelicans constitute a 'squadron' I wonder! I like the way Pelicans seem to always keep an 'eye out' even when they're tucked in. Hope you had a good weekend, happy Monday.....

  2. How do I adopt a lion??? Got a cat who things he is a lion, but as he is small, nobody really cares. Now a lion, that would be something else. Specially in our 2 bedroom flat. The neighbors might be against.

  9. Terrific shots and I love the pelicans!! I do love zoos and being able to spend time there. It's not that I like to see all the animals in cages, but I do realize that it's necessary in order to save so many species! The camera market sounds wonderful! I'd love to spend some time there, too!!

  18. These are such wonderful shots! I love that you caught them in slightly different positions, from wings spread to full squat. Haha, squadron is just brilliant, who would've thought!

    (Love your comment about being glad to not live 100 years ago - can you imagine?! :)

  22. Great pics Grace - honestly they appear as though they are posing for you. A "squadron" no less! Oh I wish I had gotten to the Perth Zoo :(

  23. Great photo Grace. Nice and crisp. Looks like we have both had a fascination for Pelicans lately. Love the collective name "squadron".. So apt.

  24. This is a great spot Grace. Love it. That four monthly visit to Camera House sounds like it could end up being expensive.

  25. The camera market would be where i would be headed

  27. No matter what species, I love pelicans! Great shots, Grace.

  28. I'm all for increasing the use of the letter 'q' so of course 'squadron' is the correct term! Apologies for the infrequency of my comments to date - Google reader has a lot to answer for, but it's a godsend to travellers with limited internet access ...

    Have a great weekend!
    PS How are my 'RED' photos coming along??!!
