    Reported by:

    A whale shark and school of anchovies swim in unison of the coast of Mafia Island, Tanzania. It was amazing to see these fish move all together, the shark and anchovies were both feeding on the same prey, sergestid shrimp.

    This is an incredible moment. I love the choice to make it black and white and the minimalist composition.
