A wonderful shot of an Atlantic Tarpon hunting a school of Silversides. The picture was taken by Mike Sutton Brown and uploaded on the Your Shot section of National Geographic website, a place where it's possible to submit a favorite photo for possible publication in National Geographic. Just like in this case you can find many wonderful and ispiring shots there. You can also download this photo as a wallpaper.
The picture was taken at Eden Rock, Grand Cayman. For just a short time every year these silversides swarm caves and swim-throughs at Cayman's dive sites. The picture was taken late afternoon just as the sun was going down. The photographer was hiding behind the silversides, low in the rocks. As the tarpon swam through the silversides, they eventually saw him and turned away. Just like you see in the picture.
