Whale Feasting on Sardines

Species: Bryde's Whale | Location: Wild Coast, South Africa

Whales show up in great quantities each June to feed on the sardines that come up the east coast of South Africa. Here is a Bryde's whale lunging up through a ball of sardines filling his mouth full. A few lucky sardines are escaping before his mouth closes.

Check out Mark's website to see more of his photography.

I love all of God's creations - from the earth's amazing formations - to the incredible animals that roam on it. I set out a few times a year to capture much of that in my photography.
