Jumping Mullet and Hunting Pelican

8 Dec

Schools of mullet graze the sea grass flats of Fiske Bayou, Anna Maria Island, and dodge the predations of pelicans and osprey.
Mullet are getting ready to spawn, and jump out of the water to release their eggs.
Low flying pelicans, cormorants and herons scare the fish from the surface to safer depths.
