Fun under the bridge.....!!

 Just as I was making my way under the Canning Bridge that I posted yesterday I spotted this pelican sailing so gracefully for such a big bird through the wooden pylons, he maneuvered his way in, through and out the other side!  When I asked  the two young girls what they were searching for at the edge of the water they told me they were catching hermit crabs to use for bait and the two lads were fishing for 'black finned bream'. They did catch one while I was watching, but the young angler looked up at me as he was gently taking the hook out of it's mouth and said  "it's a female, with eggs, got to do the right thing" and he put her back in the water, completely restoring my faith in young people all over again....!!

  6. Nicely done... sometimes it is a wonder large birds don't crash more, but they maneuver like they aren't!

  7. Good to see the young fishermen were doing the right thing. The photo of the Pelican is great framed underneath the pier. Nice one Grace.
