Gannets and Dolphins
Port St Johns, South Africa
By Greg Lecoeur

We spent hours looking for action during the sardine migration along the coast of South Africa. The gannets' frantic sounds became louder, and the birds seemed to accelerate as they shot straight down to pierce the surface of the sea. Before I got into the water I could not imagine the incredible spectacle that I would find below the surface.
