August 15. Day 227. A picture of moderation

When it comes to my diet, I am a picture of moderation where moderation is defined by never eating more than
1) I can pay for
2) I can lift and
3) I can fit in my mouth.
But just say a person could expand her mouth diameter and capacity in an instant - and massively increase the swallowing ability at the same time? Watch out all-you-can-eat buffet bar.
This is why I have so much admiration for the pelican. Those birds have an eating ability I would die for (or more likely I would die as a result of but still).
Today Rumple and I took a lunch time walk across the bridge to the University of Queensland lakes. We both found the pelicans endlessly fascinating. I wanted to be able to eat like them. Rumple just wanted to eat them.
In the end we settled for a photograph. See we can exercise some self control occasionally.


  1. hmmmm sometimes I eat over my capacity!!!always know as i get stomach ache straight away x x great photo as always and very true words x

  2. wow what a beautiful shot of such a stunning creature x

  3. I bet they were fascinating to watch, a great photo as usual with sentiments to match.

  4. The Boy adores the song 'The pelican's beak holds more than his belly can...', he thinks it's hyserical. That's a great photo, aren't they intriguing animals?
