In December, Susan Kogan and her younger daughter, Millay, who was visiting from New York City, took a walk to the Oceanside Pier, where they saw two pelicans. "It's often said that the best trips [and photos] are made closest to home," said Kogan, who lives in Oceanside. She describes this pelican as "bright, warm and pert" and could not resist snapping the photo. She used an iPhone 4s.
