Description

A group of flying gurnards is gliding above the water, hunted down by seagulls, as a steep, hilly shore vaguely reminiscent of Gibraltar can be seen in the background.
The flying gurnard (Dactylopterus volitans) is a bottom-dwelling fish in the family Dactylopteridae.

The caption reads in the original German: Flughahn.
