My Pelican Friend

There is a heartwarming story behind this photo. One day I decided to take a walk on the beach along the waters edge. As I started to walk I noticed this pelican swimming along parallel to me about thirty feet offshore. As I walked he swam. I pulled out my camera to get a shot of him and he took off in flight but instead of flying away he started to circle over head as if to say “take a picture of me now”. When I put my camera away he dropped back into the water and continued to follow me. After saying goodby for now and as I started back to my car, I looked back as he was taking off to look for breakfast. Was this coincidence or was it about natural beings becoming friends
