Feeding Pelicans

Went fishing today and caught a few Bonita.
Best part though, was the trip back in and feeding the unused bait fish to the Pelicans.
Think the boys prefer that to the fishing!

cheers Dal

Looks like great fun but a bit scary too - having all those big pointy beaks snapping round your tubes!

Fab pics which remind me.......

.......of a Blackadder one liner. Upon receiving yet another Bill, Edmund Blackadder turns to his faithful man servant, Bauldrik and says. "I feel just like a Pelican, every which way I turn there's an enormous Bill infront of me".

Anyway, here's a pic of the "dragons" feeding the sharks in the Bahamas last year. 5 minutes later we were swiming with them.

Seems the Pelicans remember our RIB!!
Went out fishing today and were followed everywhere by them.
In fact they were reaching into the boat to get the bait fish and didn't seem at all shy in getting their photos taken.
Gave us a lot of fun and chances to get some close ups of them.
In the end 3 sealions joined them and so we gave up on fishing and just enjoyed the wildlife!
Got to get a camera with less shutter delay though, as the sealions were not as obliging and couldn't get a good shot. Maybe next time.
cheers Dal

Next time you are after a digicam look at the reviews here

http://www.steves-digicams.com/hardware_reviews.html

Easily the best site - very unbiased!!!


I would particularly recommend the Panasonic Lumix FZ20 - the lens is awesome - a Leica 12x optical stablised zoom - and for about 350 or so - with a lens like that you never need another camera! Shutter delay is very small as well for a digi but never as good as a normal SLR.

Codprawn,
many thanks for the camera site. Made for some very interesting reading.
I am a keen photographer having done some minor publicity stills and event coverage years ago.When the kids came along I demoted the trusty Canon T90 35 mm for a compact Sony DSC-70 (easier to carry on outings )
The Sony has given me some great shots but it is limited, especially with the shutter lag and restricted zoom ability.
Now I have the new RIb I am really looking forward to getting some good action shots.
Main problem is whether to let the wife do the driving or the shooting?
May resort back to the Canon ,shooting transparency film and scanning the images I want to use.
Best wishes to your part of the world. My wifes from Newport and I spent many saturdays getting the hell kicked out of me on the Rugby fields of cardiff and the valleys.
cheers Dal .
P.s. not sure what they taste like;but they smell pretty bad!!!

Probably best to pass this one onto Lord Davies as he seems to shoot and eat anything that flies

Canon

Dal,

Howabout a Canon Digital Rebel (which over here is the EOS Digital)? 6 megapixel and will take you Canon lens (possibly?)? I have one and you cant beat a big lens and SLR for action ribbing photography!

Here's one I took earlier......

The best recipe I have found for pelican is to hang it for a maximum of one week, pluck and gut it, place in a pre-heated oven at gas mark 5 together with a house brick and cook for 2 hours. Remove from oven, discard the pelican and eat the brick
