I’m still discovering unintentional collections in my photos. There’s just something about pelicans, isn’t there? (Incoming! Sploosh!)
But until I was finalizing these for posting, I’d never noticed the pelican’s left foot in this next photo. Look how it’s folded down over the rock.
Of course I’m used to seeing birds grip things with their feet, but had never thought about that in connection with webbed feet. I guess, if pressed, I’d have said those feet had some flexibility, but not as much as other birds’ feet. And once I saw it in that photo, I saw it here, too.
Well, whaddya know? Clams got legs and birds got hands.
