Cape Gannets feeding of a trapped anchovy ball close to the surface, what makes this image very unique is the fact that the gannets were not diving down from the sky to catch the anchovies but sitting on the surface and then swimming down to feed, sometimes having up to 5 to 6 goes at the anchovies before returning to the surface.

Location: Port St Johns, Wild Coast, Transkei, South Africa
