Photo Challenge - THINGS WITH WINGS

Thanks Shannon for hosting this round of Brenda's Photo Challenge. The theme is Things with Wings! I had a great time finding photos for this challenge. Hope that you like them :-)

This photo is from the Katoomba Magic Festival that is held on Winter Solstice each year. You see so many wacky people and there are always plenty of photo opportunities. I just love the mish-mash of clothes she has going on.

This is me at our friend John's 50th birthday. I am a blue fairy (can you tell?...LOL). I had a great time and every now and then kids from the school I work at will come up to me and ask if I was a blue fairy because they saw my photo in the local costume shop's photo albums.

This last picture is of a very stately pelican at a beach near Nelson Bay, up the coast from Sydney. We spent a lovely weekend camped up there and there was quite a large flock of pelicans nearby as it was near the local boat ramp, where the weekend fisherman launched their boats. I'm guessing that the pelicans got all the scraps :-)

Nice photos! You seemed quite close to the pelican, they must be used to people. I've heard they don't smell very good!
