Gimme a Fish

I haven't ventured outside today. After a few days of really sunny mild winter weather, the heavens opened in the early hours of the morning and we had a terrific thunder storm. We have had 46 mm rain since about 5 am according to our rain gauge.

I took this photo a few days ago while we were walking along the beach. This pelican was following a fisherman on the breakwater hoping to get a catch of his own.

My favourite, favourite birdie!

This chap was pestering the life out of a fisherman who was gutting his fish, but his persistence was rewarded when he kept getting off cuts thrown for him.
No wonder he was so tame and let me get really close, he wasn't moving away from the food source.
