photo was just there.
I am often amazed how sometimes you can plan and plan for a photo and other times it's just there.
Such was the case with the pelican. After a pretty much worthless dive photo wise because of visibility. I rinsed off my gear and took my camera out of the housing and when I turned around the bird landed on the mooring post just long enough for me to take a photo, then flew away.
Sometimes they are just there.
