Lunch Time Entertainment

If you watch closely you can find a lot of drama in Nature.

This afternoon I was with two friends having lunch at Captain Hiram's, looking out at the Intercoastal Waterway otherwise known as The Indian River.  We, along with others enjoying lunch, noticed the telltale fin of a porpoise inside the marina area.   Then as we watched 4 pelicans began following the dark shadow of the porpoise. 
Even when we couldn't see the fin we knew just where the porpoise was.  We guessed  they were just being friendly, keeping an eye on the big Mammal or waiting for meal scraps.
Then it seemed as if they realized he was after THEIR food and they began flapping their wings and driving the lone porpoise back to his pod, outside the harbor.

But did you ever see pelicans chasing them?
