There's a lot to take in: the fisherman who expertly gut the fish, the huge tarpon who lurk just below the surface, the dozens of fighting, arguing pelicans who compete viciously for the off cuts - the guts, the heart, the eyes. It happens daily on the Harbor Walk (Historic seaport/Key West Bight), right by the A&B restaurant. It's meant to happen at 4pm but on the day these pictures were taken it started at 3pm.
It's one of the most fascinating shows in town. Here's a video and click below to see more great pictures of this daily spectacle....

|Once the scoop of pelicans (yep, the collective noun is a scoop!) has got a scrap of fish, whatever bit of the fish it is, the fight begins. And goes on for ages!|
