    Reported by:

    A freediver swim in the deep of "swallows cave" in Tonga. This cave is settled by more than few thousand fish. They offer you a spectacular ballet when you dive inside. The contrast between the dark of the bottom and the light of the top make bright the fishes like stars.

    You’re caption is spot on-it does look like an underwater ballet. You’ve managed to transport me back to when I dreamt of being the Little Mermaid. The surrounding fish and touch of light at the top of the frame make me feel like I’m swimming right behind.
