Our photo of the day comes from Apalachicola, Florida.

Pelicans are such a wonder: Giant, odd, and gawky, yet at the same time powerful, masterful, and elegant. And apparently a bit bossy, as can be seen in this photo by Richard Liebert, who tiles the shot, "Brown Pelican Chasing Seagull Off of His Spot." Sorry seagull, move along.
