Drone Reveals Whales Visit Barcelona
You did not know that, did you? Don’t feel bad about it, neither did we. Footage of fin whales feeding at the surface has been captured for the first time by using a drone camera off the Catalan coast. The beautiful images show two adults turning on their sides and speeding up while opening their vast mouths to trap several tons of water.
The video clip shows the whales repeating the same behavior and provides the marine biologists with a rare insight.This video is also of great scientific importance since it provides valuable information regarding how these animals feed.
The images were recorded off the coast of Garraf, just south of Barcelona; seems like a good place to start the summer and a good pretext to test your flying skills against Mother Nature. The effort did pay off!
