Cormorant Freedivers / by Felix Leander

Cormorant are Miami's best freedivers.  We always see them in the bay swimming on the surface and diving.  Usually it is next to impossible to get close to them - they are weary and shy. However, the other day we saw one that had just caught a fish and was having problems handling it.  I was able to get close enough for some footage.
