    Reported by:

    While diving Pink beach site on Bonaire, we were suddenly engulfed by a huge wall of bigeye scad. We could only watch, awestruck, as the huge mass of fish swam around us, blocking the sun. It was truly a moment to be amazed by the force of nature.

    I love Your Shot photographer Natalie Haldemann's comment: "Excellent shot! It made me look twice. I like the framing of only fish — not too close, not too far away and I believe the choice of of B&W makes this frame more intense. Especially with the big eyes almost popping out. I also find it amusing with your caption — wondering if the fish stare at you wondering where you came from.... :-)"
