A Brown Pelican Miss

Back in 'Sota we have White Pelicans. Sometimes I see them in mornings down on our lake, working as a group with their Cormorant sidekicks, herding schools of fish toward shore where they can corral and catch them. On the other hand, Brown Pelicans are solo hunters, spotting and diving after fish near the surface. I was a little disappointed when I saw this set on my computer. I was expecting to see a fish in the last picture instead of an embarrassed pelican grin. Oh, well.





Good fishing, -Gunnar
