    While photographing lilies in a local swamp a cloud of tadpoles swam by numbering in the thousands, all following along in a trail.

    Now that is VERY impressive. The planets certainly aligned for you with this photo. I'm intrigued how you took it though. I assume you have invested in a suitable underwater housing. How did you trigger the camera after letting the water become settled and clear... or is this a trade secret :P

    This photo is almost surreal, like a Monet painting.

    Hey Eiko Jones, I've really loved this photo for a while and I just wanted to let you know that I'm writing a small paper about it for my history of modern photography class in college.  We have to pic our favorite photographs and write a bit about them.  Thought you might like to hear that. :)

    @Martyn Philo  Hi. I have a housing that contains my camera. I was scuba diving in the swamp slowly. When the tadpoles came by I just slowly moved along to keep the water clear ahead of me.
