The Sardine Run is a mass migration of baitfish from the cold waters of the southern ocean up into the temperate waters of Mozambique. Predators from all around come to join in on a fast meal, the coolest of which being this Cape Gannet, who dives up to 12 meters to catch his prize. Out of all the things Brocq has seen under the waves this one is at the top of his all time favorite list.
