Pelican heaven in Bonaire

Photograph: Lorenzo Mittiga / Barcroft Media
A split water-level view of the Dutch Caribbean Sea, off the shores of Bonaire, shows a myriad of fish,  of which the Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) is only too well aware.   This is obviously a bountiful feeding ground.   The pelican, of course, must become airborne in order to dive into the water from above the surface to catch its fishy food.
