This morning was a lot of fun watching these goof balls trying to catch fish. They get into a group, usually in a circle and go head first into the water at the same time. It looks like sycronized swimming at the olympics.

    Ya cant plan a shot like that. Nice one!!

  • It was comical the way they were bobbing up and down. It looks like they all agreed to sit for a second and pose.
