What you need to know:

  • The sky above was darkening but the lake was still mirror calm, disturbed only by the paddling pelicans.
  • On the shore nearby, beyond a grove of sprawling acacias, a herd of zebras ambled over to the waterhole.

With their distinctive drooping throat pouches and stumpy frames, pelicans aren’t the prettiest of feathered creatures. But on the water, when it’s time to feed, they perform the most graceful synchronised swimming routine. Drifting in a compact group, they drive fish beneath them into the shallows by beating their wings on the surface, and then dive below to scoop them up in unison.
