Two basking sharks have been spotted off the Mayo coast by a local photographer.

The footage was recorded by landscape photographer Terry McDonough, who had been using his drone in Keem Bay, Achill earlier this month.

Terry caught the animals on camera on earlier this month, waiting for them to move to turquoise waters so he could get a clear shot.

Speaking of the breath-taking footage, Terry said: “I decided to get the van and head to Achill once restrictions had eased to do some landscape photography.

“I studied marine biology, so I knew they [basking shark] could be around this time of year,” he added.
