The flying fish is one of my all-time favorite animals. Every time I see a high-flyer skip across the surface of the ocean, it puts a smile on my face. The above footage captured by the BBC is some of the most incredible flying fish footage I’ve ever seen. These animals, and the mahi and frigates chasing them down, are so difficult to grasp in a sharp photo or crisp video because of their speed and quick moves. I have no idea how many hours it took to get this two and a half minutes of video, but I’m guessing it was several days worth. Utterly amazing. Sometimes I feel like that flying fish, getting it from above and below.
Thank you BBC. I heart you.
