Captain Dave Anderson, who works for his own business, Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari, was conducting a rather routine “aquatic safari” when he stumbled upon a massive herd of three gray whales and several thousand dolphins.
Not one to miss his chance to make droneography history, Captain Dave whisked out his camera and set it in motion. The results speak for themselves: amazing, high definition views of an entire herd of dolphins “stampeding” before his astonished eyes. Every bit of the action, from the individual features of thousands of whale and dolphin bodies passing by, to the splashing waves created in their wake, was captured using the latest modern drone camera technology.
Technology buffs and conservation experts alike are enthralled by this latest technology and the potential it unleashes to study these majestic beasts “up close and personal” in their natural environment. No longer do researchers and film crews have to be so close to the animals they are capturing on film. The possibility for safe, animal friendly, research and study is finally being realized, thanks to drone camera technology. A more welcome development for man and beast could hardly be imagined.
