Spotfin Flyingfish and reflection

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR – Winner

While on a research cruise, we chanced upon an area with quite a few of these striking fish. The glassy, mirror-like sea and evening light provided a perfect opportunity. To capture the image, I positioned myself precariously on the bow, shooting back down the side of the vessel as the occasional fish fled the moving boat.
