A funny old bird is a pelican.
His beak can hold more than his bellican.
Food for a week
He can hold in his beak,
But I don't know how the hellican.

Note: Evidently, this pelican's full belly prevented him from escaping my Zenza Bronica!!

This photo was taken by a Zenza Bronica S2 medium format film camera and Nikkor-P 1:2.8 f=7.5 cm lens using Kodak Portra 400 film, the negative scanned by an Epson Perfection V600 and digitally rendered with Photoshop.

Sometimes it seems unavoidable to take a photo - this was such as case

In fact, there may be a Zenza Bronica S2 inside his belly already, the one that your predecessor had left unattended for a little moment... and with such a brick in his belly there is no chance of escaping.... (note: this one is known as the "pelican-bronica-trick")

So, you know about the "pelican-bronica-trick", also! If this bird had eaten, say, an iPhone there would be less problems for him!

What a great limerick rhyme. Even for non native English speakers the sense comes crystal clear instantly. But who nailed his feet? ;))
