Wandering albatross in flight, over the open sea.  The wandering albatross has the largest wingspan of any living bird, with the wingspan between, up to 12' from wingtip to wingtip.  It can soar on the open ocean for hours at a time, riding the updrafts from individual swells, with a glide ratio of 22 units of distance for every unit of drop.  The wandering albatross can live up to 23 years.  They hunt at night on the open ocean for cephalopods, small fish, and crustaceans. The survival of the species is at risk due to mortality from long-line fishing gear, Diomedea exulans

A freediving spearfisherman glides quietly through the kelp forest in search of game fish to hunt.  The most skilled spearfishermen forego the use of SCUBA, which is noisy underwater and scares away fish.  Instead, they practice breathhold techniques to move silently through the water.
