            This is a 4k drone video about an Osprey named Oscar.
  Happy Friday Fish friends, this weeks Friday flight video features the majestic Osprey! This particular Osprey I named Oscar and he a local bird that I have been studying the past 3 years. These massive birds of prey are one of my favorite coastal ocean animals, although technically they are not even classified as a sea bird!  I filmed this drone video a few months ago when the laws were a bit different and my flying wasn’t quite as smooth as it is today. I recently found it in my hard drive and thought you might enjoy seeing it. 

 I am a trained animal specialist with years of experience, please do not try filming videos like this yourself without a professional! Wild animals can be dangerous and unpredictable you may end up hurting yourself and/or the animal if you don’t know what you are doing.

  Whenever I am filming wild animals I always make sure to respect them and there space and this osprey drone video was no exception. I was extremely careful and was able to capture this moment without ever even causing the osprey to move from his perch! I hope you enjoy seeing this Osprey from a birds eye view. I work very hard on all of my videos and it means a lot to get feedback from you guys. If you liked this video then please click the thumbs up button and/or drop me a comment to let me know! I work very hard on all of my videos and I love hearing back from you. I promise to do my best at responding to every comment, you guys are awesome! Now go have an epic weekend! TGIF baby, Yew!

Good morning Googlies and Happy Friday! Here is your Friday Fly ocean moment to help get you pumped for the weekend, enjoy!
 
  This video is about a feeding frenzy made up of dolphins, sea lions, and even whales! In southern California we have been experiencing  a lot of interesting animal behavior this year. Most of it is due to the fact that el nino is on it's way! It is going to be awesome and I can hardly wait! Yew!!                                                                                                              This was my first Viral Fish Friday Flight video filmed using my dji phantom 3 gold quadcopter drone and it seems to be working just fine. I hope this ocean video gives you a mental escape from whatever you may be doing and helps you get excited for the weekend! If you liked this video then please click the thumbs up button to give it a like =) Thank you for watching and loving the ocean.
 Stay Bubbly .o0

cheers,

Talk about a frustrating heat, Mick Fanning was attacked by this shark while surfing his final heat at J-Bay South Africa!
Amazingly, he is survived and is ok!

*Mick Fanning attacked by shark during live coverage of surfing event in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa. He is fine.
Australian surfer Mick Fanning has survived a shark attack during a surfing event at Jeffreys Bay in South Africa. 
The unprecedented attack was broadcast live on television with Fanning remarkably coming out unscathed after he "punched him in the back". 
The shark approached ominously from behind as Fanning sat on his board, before launching at him. 
"I was just about to start moving and then I felt something grab [and] get stuck in my leg rope. And I instantly just jumped away and it just kept coming at my board. I was just started kicking and screaming. Wow!
"I just saw fin, I didn't see the teeth. I was waiting for the teeth to come at me as I was swimming."
Commentators were shocked as they called the attack live on air, with one exclaiming "Holy sh*t! Excuse me." They described the moment later as "dramatic" and "frightening", saying it was the first time they had seen a shark attack a competitor during an event. 
Fanning described the shark as "big enough". It was spotted half an hour after the attack, while there were unconfirmed reports of a second shark involved.

Good morning Googlies, check this out! Just when you think dolphins are safe..  I feel bad for the dolphin and the woman, hope they both recover fast! 

This is another perfect example of how unpredictable the ocean is and how we must always respect it.
