A potpourri of images for you today. I had a meeting down town yesterday morning and after that I headed for the river with my long lens. Found a group of pelicans fishing near the lock so I spent some time photographing them. I didn’t realize until halfway through my session that there was a lady below me on the walkway who was also photographing the pelicans.
This is a favorite fishing hole for many local anglers and when a group of pelicans are hanging around it there are very few fish available for the humans. I was getting ready to leave when fisherman crossed over and took up his position on the outside wall of the lock. I obviously didn’t know his intent but it looked as though he was trying to scare the pelicans off with his casts.
At first, I thought this was a stick protruding from the water but it kept moving and when I looked at it through my lens I saw it was a turtle swimming towards the shore line. The more I watched the more turtles I saw swimming in the same direction. I was probably there 30 – 45 minutes and didn’t notice them until I saw this one. Then when I started looking for them, they were plentiful.
Grilled some burgers last night and as I was enjoying the mild weather on the patio I noticed the sliver of moon. I grabbed my “small bird” camera that I keep on a tripod and set up with the 400 mm lens (a little small for the moon) and made a couple of shots of the moon.
That’s it for today. Supposed to be a beautiful day in our part of the world. Hope it is where you are as well. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
Thank you very much
