Ocean Banquet - (Copyright Craig Bertram Smith-2018)
Far from land and human contact, the ocean is a sanctuary of shifting blue. At one moment calm and lifeless and then next a frenzy. Pelagic predators scout the depths, traveling many kilometers a day in search of their prey. Sometimes a collaborative approach is called for in the hunt and corral the bait fish together. They drive the fish to the surface in a swirling bait ball and with no chance of escape, the little fish are picked off in a frenetic display. The predators gorge them selves on the banquet, as its not every day that they will feed like this.
