A photographer found out it is seldom wise to cross a pelican.

This huge great white pelican at Moscow Zoo took exception to being photographed and lunged forward to peck Nikolay Sotskov's camera.

Fortunately Nikolay was able to step back and prevent his lens disappearing into the vast abyss formed by the pelican's beak and the mouth opening - which is normally the last thing seen by fish, the bird's usual diet, as they are swallowed whole.

I saw one brake a guys lens. An expensive lens.

It is amazing to see just how big their mouths are....they're really neat birds; have their own fishing net built right in.
