Pelicans had a feast today

American White Pelicans 1  

I shot a lot of images this evening down at the Mississippi River at lock & dam #11 in Dubuque, Iowa. It was absolutely exciting to watch the American White Pelicans hunting for fish in a collective effort. They have a great hunting strategy by rounding up the fish and driving them literally into each others bills. There must be a lot of fish coming down the river because they were very successful.

Sorting through all the pictures can be very time consuming but I like to find those that tell the story about a feast at the Mississippi today the best... I hope you enjoy! Wishing all friends and visitors of my blog a great weekend!
