Barracuda smashing a popper

Just had to post this video of a barracuda taking a popper, originally shared by Joe Cattle on Vimeo.

Barracuda on fly

There are several things I love about this:

  1. It’s not too long
  2. The best bits are repeated
  3. It shows the take from not just one angle, but two!
  4. There are some cracking stills in the movie like the ones shown here
  5. The fish almost ends up in the boat – caught perfectly in slow motion

Great skills Joe.

Click here for a movie where a barracuda actually DOES end up in the boat.
