Feeding time for everybody

Sometimes there is enough food for everybody, small and big, water and air animals. When the Chicharro (=horse mackerel, tracharus picturatus) come in huge quantities, we can observe big feeding balls with different species of dolphins, shearwater birds and sometimes tuna. This time there was even a fin whale participating, first looking around for food and then going straight for the fish ball.

Emanuel with the swimming boat in the middle of the spectaculo...

Where is the fish?? Good underwater observation skills are crucial for good catches

Too heavy stomach for take off hm ;)

Finally in the air!

Spotted dolphins hunting for the fish... The dolphins are the only one able to collect the fish in a compact ball close to the surface, which demands long and constant work until the feeding event is finished.
