When I walked to the water’s edge there were no pelicans. But because I did walk to that spot, right next to the fish scaling bench, pelicans appeared. They’re graceful creatures, especially given their size. They saw me and justed gently wafted in. They were disappointed, all I was holding was my mobile, ready to take a picture, and they presented one. But no fish for the underdogs too willing to stake a bet that they could get a free lunch, rather than go fishing themselves.
