CORMORANT DIVING FOR HERRING

Sea of Cortez, Mexico

by Rand McMeins

Edmonds, Washington, USA

“During a dive near Los Islotes in the Sea of Cortez, I happened onto a huge school of herring being chased by sea lions, pelicans and cormorants. It was an incredible scene from my vantage point beneath the surface and I was lucky to capture the action in this frame.”

Nikon D2X; 10.5mm lens; digital capture; underwater housing.
