Ever Wonder How Many Fish Are in the Ocean?
No interesting birds got in the range of my lens today but, it was a blast, anyhow.
Out on the west coast of the island, the weather was beautiful.
There was 420MM of glass on the end of the camera so, I picked on this fishing boat.
Without a tripod, I figured, it would be best to sit on a rock, down at sea level.
To create a GIF, it's best to make sure the camera remains steady.
That was accomplished, by propping my elbows on top of my bony knees.
Then, I blasted away and shot a series of about 100 images, just for the fun of it.
At 8.6 frames per second, it doesn't take long to get enough photos to create an animation.
After I had my fill of photos, fresh sea breeze air and, scorching sunshine, I got thinking.
"Damn, it's hot down here." So, I hurried off the beach looking for some shade.
If, they had one for the Worst Fisherman on Earth, I could probably win.
Fresh fish, I love especially, when they just came out of the ocean.
Throw them on a grill, the same day they were snagged and, they are delicious.
People who eat fish that was frozen for a few months, have no clue. That stuff stinks.
The folks, who work catching fish, are real heroes to me. I can't catch the darn things.
Not even with a net, when the critters are in an aquarium.
It's easier, to dump all the water out and, stomp on the little things, 'til they stop wiggling.
That's what kind of fisherman, I am.
Maybe, they can do some estimates but, fish don't hold still very long.
In my never ending searches for the truth, I came up with a tidbit for y'all.
An average of twenty tons of fish, comes into a market, every day, down in Naha.
When, they have a lucky, day sometimes fifty tons, come into the same port.
That's a bunch of fish in my hillbilly opinion. Check it out !
