I got up early this morning and caught a few shots of 'fishing'.

Most of Colorado lakes are for irrigation. As the snow melts, they start to fill the lakes that have been emptied the previous summer for crops.

I guess Pelicans don't believe in sharing.

The big one that did not get away. It took 4 tries at swallowing, but that big ole' fish went down.

These captures are GREAT! What lake did you find these pelicans? I've been chasing...and I do mean chasing....pelicans in Windsor at Pelican Lakes. Everytime these guys see me they swim away, and my lens is just not long enough to get a decent photo of them. Thanks for sharing your pelicans.
