Pelican photobomb!

Wooohoooo! Pelican photobombs Heermann's Gull. Off San Diego, California. March 8, 2015. Greg Gillson.
While taking photos of Heermann's Gulls last month off San Diego, this brash pelican jumped in front and stole the shot.

The popcorn feeding frenzy in the stern of the pelagic birding boat creates a dizzying swirl of gulls. Other seabirds often join, at least briefly, looking for a meal. Imagine, hoping for a fish dinner and the only thing there is popcorn. Yuck!
