This rare footage afford us to watch a breath taking drama that unfolds underwater and above water, actually, up in the air, all within the bounds of the vast blue ocean.
From a distance, the flying fish is a delight to see. It makes powerful, strong propelled leaps out of the water reaching out into the air.
It has a long, wing-like fins which enables longer distance of a flight above the water surface.
But upon a closer look, the fish may actually be fighting for its life. It is because a bigger predator fish is in hot pursuit wanting to make the flying fish its raw snack.
But quite ironic, while it may evade for a while the bigger swimming predator, up in the air, another predator frigate bird waits for the right timing.
Fish that survive the predators, are caught in fishing nets, for human consumption.
This is sad.
