I’ve seen anchovy run three miles along the coast a few times in my life. I was stoked to be on the beach with my camera when they swam through Torrey Pines last week.
It was wonderful to be immersed in all the life out there. Sharks, dolphin, rays, and birds were all focused on hunting the bait which made for an exhilarating experience. It was very difficult to capture the dolphin, which was my goal, because of their rapid speed and hunting technique. They slap the top of the water with their tail, and also work as a team to stir up the sand. confusing the bait.
