Original.  These are dinosaurs of the 21st century.  I love to stand and watch these guys fly in formation, mere inches from the ocean surface, skim for breakfast, lunch and dinner.    Other times, when there is a school of fish, they fearlessly dive-bomb and then ... gulp !  Entertainment reality-style !
