    On my recent travels, I was lucky to spend a few days in the waters of Ascension Island. I fell in love with the healthy waters and the abundance of fish I saw every time I immersed in the water. This image was taken at Boatswain Bird Island where Galapagos sharks are surrounded by the blackfish waiting for chicks of breeding birds to fall from the rock and be an easy prey. It's like going back in time, but it still exists. Let's do everything to protect pristine seas.

    Sheer abundance! The triggerfish alone would not have made it, but the sharks among them is what makes me like this photo. Good composition.
