I have been told that fishing and catching fish are two very different things.Since I have never tried fishing,I wouldn't know for sure, but I do know that the ones doing the fishing,which I recently watched, needed to be catching some fish to live.
I spent several hours at Lockport,Manitoba,which is north of Winnipeg,along the Red River. Yes,there are some locks there for boats to go through, but for me the attraction was the American White Pelicans who are on the water.
This is a wide angle look at the bridge.
I think these Pelicans are about the most graceful flyers.Something about the white and black wings that is just spectacular. The wingspan can be as much as 110".
Oh yes, there were some human fishermen around as well.I later did see them catch a Catfish as well.
Obviously,this was not the first time that this gentleman had spent some time with the Pelicans.As soon as he sat down several birds swam towards him, waiting for a handout.
I found it so fascinating to see these large birds, back up against the falls and proceed to fish.Some of them were in that position for a long time so I'm hoping they got some tasty fish as well.
These birds fascinate me.They don't have the most beautiful faces, but they are still majestic.
Something To Think About:
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?
