Each week I look at the weather forecast and plan my nature outings accordingly. Mondays are laundry and housework day, but since yesterday was the only decent day forecasted for the week, I had to take advantage of it. With no make-up and no shower, I threw my gear into the car and headed out to LSU Lakes. Positioned about 20' above the water I sat on a pile of wet leaves for 2 hours as the pelicans cavorted on a fallen tree. I searched for information online about the behavior I witnessed to no avail. It wasn't aggressive and they didn't seem to be exhibiting mating rituals, so I assume it was play time. Despite a back ache and wet butt it was a fun couple of hours! And I still managed to get all my chores done late that afternoon. Go me!
|Awww, don't get mad. I was just playing!|
