Good catch.

An American White Pelican with a large fish in its pouch. One from the archives, photographed on Last Mountain Lake, Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

This part of Ontario is under a heat warning at the moment which got me thinking about photography in hot weather. That made me think of a hot afternoon in Saskatchewan when I set up a tripod in a channel where a marsh drains into a section of Last Mountain Lake. I sat in the water behind the camera. There was a group of American White Pelicans fishing in the channel. They would swim in the direction of the water flow before flying back to the start of the channel and repeating the fishing expedition.

This breeding adult looks a bit grumpy despite the size of the fish it has caught.

Twisting and turning.

A couple of Black Terns twisting and turning as they search for something to eat in a marsh. A bird would spot something in the marsh and twist around in flight.

I was taking a little used back road as an alternative route to visit friends in Saskatchewan when I came across a small colony of Black Terns on a marshy slough. Needless to say, I was late getting to the friends place although they knew I was going to be delayed having seen me on the back road when I was photographing the Terns.
