Huntington Beach State Park near Myrtle Beach rewards the frequent visitor with new stuff every time.
My primary interest in the brown pelican is to catch them in motion, with wings spread wide, in a lovely setting. But sometimes there are interesting things to see even when they’re standing almost still in ankle-deep in mud.
Me, I have a hard time scratching that spot between my shoulder blades with my fingers. The pelican, apparently, can do it with the back of its head.
But wait. Impossible as this was, there was more.
Not just more, but worse. Ouch.
This definitely looks uncomfortable enough to be a new yoga backbend: the pelican pose.
