This post has photo overload.
About the middle of June,I had the privilege of going along with some friends on an excursion to photograph White Pelicans. We had a great time.
Along the way we made a few stops to see the sights.
This old tree root was one that caught my attention.It is lying at the edge of a rivers it may have floated there from somewhere else.I really don't know, but I liked it's root remnants that were still there.
I did say we went to see Pelicans, and Pelicans we did see, lots of them.
Here a squadron was coming in for a landing.
Getting ready for touch down.
And touch down is happening. Looks rather close to the others, but I never saw any collisions, so all is well.
These birds, so graceful in the sky, look rather goofy as they come in for a landing.
All the mist you saw in the background of previous pictures is explained by this picture.These are the locks at Lockport, Manitoba. There must be good fishing for the birds and even the humans at this spot.Down river, were lots of folks in boats hoping to catch a fish.
It wasn't just the Pelicans who came to fish.This Osprey was hunting as well.
It almost looks like he's getting ready to dive into the water.
I think these birds are so beautiful.I only wish he had been flying into the picture, but the action is pretty fast, so I will be content with this.
Yes, he was successful in getting a fish as well.
A trio of Pelicans soars into view. Perfect formation flying.
Something To Think About:
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap norgather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?
