Did you see the mahi mahi and frigate birds hunting flying fish episode? Also spectacular!click here!
Oh yes, I did see that.I haven't seen the whole series. My son was watching it with his kids when we were at their house at the weekend. Definitely want to watch the rest now.
There is a huge drag penalty operating in shallow water like that. I wonder if the calories expended are greater than what they can eat this way. Maybe those are just really good tasting fish?
Hey Danny B. Haven't heard from you for a while. Seems like at least 233 years since you last posted any comments. Can you please provide the mathematical derivation for why you think the drag penalty is "huge." Surely it all depends on the angle of attack?
Didn't Einstein explain this 100 years ago?Wavedancer
I think Einstein did leave some comments on this blog about skim boarding, Wavedancer. I will have to look back through the archives.
A foiling fish? Thanx for sharing... (Though technically it's not a fish)
