Gulls love to hang around the pelicans when they are feeding. Expecting a morsel or two, the gulls are very assertive. The pelican has its own tactics, keeping the treasured fish underwater, nudging the scavenger away and circling out of reach. Ninety nine percent of the time, the pelican easily consumes its prey...and yet, the gull sticks around and even follows the flight to the next food dive. Sometimes persistence is not particularly efficient! :) 5th Ave S & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
