DFIF pics - Dinosaur Fish in Flight
May 2, 2012

Here are a few flying Gulf Sturgeon I got with my 7D / 70-200 Mk II on the Suwannee River in Florida this weekend. It's a bit hard to tell the scale here, but these freshwater fish are HUGE, adults averaging 150 lbs and over 4 feet long.

They jump up to 6 feet high and are responsible for multiple boater injuries every year due to some rather unfortunate timing with pleasure boaters speeding by, even the occasional fatality. These fish have armor plates and are effectively unchanged for the pass 200 million years.

The proverbial one that got away...just out of frame...aaaargghhhh!
