The play between bird and sea life – Flickr pic of the day


This picture of an albatross in a sea full of sharks was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Tim Brown.

Tim says, “This photo was taken on a pelagic shark diving trip with Apex Shark Expeditions from Simon’s Town. About 40km (25 miles) off Cape Point, we picked up the warm Agulhas current and had near perfect conditions for the dive. We saw about 15 blue sharks and 2 mako sharks during our time out, and it was thrilling to watch the blue sharks and an albatross interacting. The sharks would harass the bird and the bird would peck at the sharks in return. Everyone survived!”

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
