Boca Raton resident Laureen Francis spent some time at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier, Fla., where she photographed this little pelican posing on the boardwalk. "My husband jokingly called me the 'Pelican Whisperer,'" said Francis. "This sanctuary does a lot of help for injured birds. You can learn a lot on their website at www.fkwbc.org."
