Kelp Gulls Feeding on Bait
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
We had finished photography for the day, so the crew threw overboard what was left of the bait we’d been using to attract the sharks. We then noticed a commotion on the water’s surface, caused by kelp gulls (Larus dominicanus) arriving to feed on the discarded bait.
I lowered the pole cam back to surface level and pulled the line, shooting with a wide-angle (17mm) lens and placing the camera housing’s dome port very close to the gulls. The interesting angle of this image was the result.
