Home To Roost

Last night, I had a couple of hours of daylight so I raced off to the river after having the parental units for dinner. I started yaking with Shug Parnell, who is a an interesting 80 year old with a red Pit named Buck whom I often see at the river. He rides around alot with his dog since his wife died about a year ago. After the Navy, he worked all over the world as a welder for various companies and on nuclear power plants. When I finally tore myself away from his story, only a few minutes of daylight were left on the river. but I snapped these photos of the pelican coming in to roost.

My Monday Work

This morning on the Wacissa River was a treat, as usual. I was especially delighted to find this pelican doing some early morning inland fishing. The pelican was catching a good number of fish and I was able to get some close up shots. I have not seen a pelican on this river until today.
