COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA: A PELICAN CO-OP

At first, I was alarmed at the large congregation of pelicans on the water. I instantly thought they were plotting a 2019 takeover. After some research, it turns out that pelicans fish in cooperative groups. They either form straight, or U-shaped formations (both of which you’ll see within this series) to flap their wings to gather fish in shallow water and then the pelicans take turns leaving the formations to dive in for fish food.

KAMIANETS-PODILSKYI, UKRAINE IMAGES: NO ‘STRANGER DANGER’

Usually you walk around cities and the stray cats or dogs generally run away from you at first sign of any kind of approach, right? Well, in the sleepy town of K.P., most of the dogs and cats were friendly, indicating that the citizens of K.P. must be kind to them. That’s a good feeling.

He was merely a kitten, but sweet as could be. Almost looks like a wise old owl, doesn’t he?
