the sardine run #24

shooting diving cape gannets is not trivial task, they enter water at speed sometimes exceeding 60 km/h, making loud low frequency boom sound, and it took few attempts before relative success. Approach finally used - while sitting in the bait ball once sound of bird entering was heard I was stretching camera with fixed parameters on my hands and making 360 degrees turn, hitting trigger every time then spotting bird next to my port. This is one of the resulting images.
