When we first got to the River Pond, I checked out the AO pretty thoroughly.
|"Not much going on here ... how about down that way?"|
|"I sense something down in the open part of the River Pond! Let's go down there!"|
Mom wasn't sure if I heard birdies out that way or sensed that there was something going on, but she let me take the lead. I suggested we go down the road a bit, then head to the open part of the water!
|"Down here, Mom. Trust me!"|
We got down to the water's edge and had a good look. Mom thought she saw something interesting about 500 yards out, and used the camera's telescopic lens like a telescope! I took a look myself.
|"Can you see that white dot out there? Just at the narrow part of the water."|
Let's look through Mom's camera lens!
Oooh! A pelican! Mom wanted him to come closer ... so I started sending out my signals! You know - my special gift of getting other animals to trust me? I used all of my Zen of Zim powers to get him to swim our way.
In this next shot, you can see he's getting closer and is checking me out.
You can tell he's intrigued, can't you?
Here he is, heading our way!
|"That's it! Come closer, my friend! Come closer!"|
That white dot's getting closer! He kept coming and coming. He swam over and Mom got some good shots (I'll post them tomorrow!) ...
|"Follow me, Mr. Pelican!"|
... then I asked him to follow me back over to that branch of the pond I was at in the second picture up there.
|"Ha roo, Mr. Pelican!"|
He did some posing for Mom, then flew off, back over to where he was when we first saw him. It was so cool communing with him! Imagine - a Siberian Husky and an American White Pelican friends! How wonderful is that!?! I'll show you my other new friends tomorrow!
Have a great day, everyone!
