An abundance of nature moments on our early morning boat ride to Captain Sam’s inlet on Kiawah Island, SC.
Strand feeding, a dolphin feeding behavior that is unique to the lowcountry of South Carolina, is an amazing thing to witness. The dolphins herd schools of fish then swim with great force to push them ashore. Then they flop up onto the beach to consume their prey. The pelicans have learned to perch in just the right place to catch some of the flying fish for themselves. It is an amazing sight to see and happens so fast, I was happy to catch a few to give you an idea of what it is like.
While we were photographing from the boat, a man was standing on the shore photographing the dolphins feeding. Let the fish fly!
