  • "Sudden as a bolt from a crossbow, the pelican folded its wings and dived, cleaving the water with scarcely a splash. ... Aboard once more, the pelican was persuaded with some difficulty to give up its catch, but at last suffered its captor to reach cautiously into the leathery subgular pouch and extract a fine, fat sea bream."

    —Diana Gabaldon, Voyager (NY: Dell, 1994), 697
