The American White Pelican is an absolutely gorgeous bird. Some may differ with that phrase, but I happen to love them. Yes,those huge bills give them a bit of a goofy look, but seeing them soar in the sky is simply majestic.
Come with me to Lockport,Manitoba and let's watch these birds for a short while.
Coming in for a landing, touch down has just been made.
It was a rather hot day, when I was there so I am assuming that the birds held their wings slightly raised in order to cool off.That is simply a guess so if someone wants to correct me,I am waiting to hear from you.
A small island seemed to hold some special attraction to these birds.
It is about time to make that long, almost two hour, drive back home. But wait, this kind of beauty just begs to be captured, so I make a quick stop to get a few shots. The river is the Red River,which makes it's way north into Manitoba from the US.
Along the way,I also spotted this church and it's lovely steeple. I thought it was quite lovely in the late afternoon light.
Who knows where our next travels will take us too? I only hope you will plan to join me.
Something To Think About:
Praise God! Praise You, Lord, for the wonder of the earth You created.
