Pelican in the sea

It was warm and the summer sun was setting.
The beach was getting deserted as everybody started heading back to the hotel.
It was very nice and pleasant with a nice breeze and the ocean waves lulling me into somnolent bliss.
This pelican kept me company – alternating between rest on the waves and dive-bombing for fish.

Northern Pelican

This pelican was photographed swimming in the Lake of The Woods. I always though that the pelican was a tropical bird, yet I subsequently found out that some, not all, migrate to northern Ontario. I saw a documentary film about Australian pelicans where again, some – not all, pelicans migrate to a dry lake in the middle of the Australia desert, when particularly heavy rains create this lake. What a strange yet exquisite bird.
