Sunday Night Fish n Pics #4

One of the most amazing feelings I experience underwater is when I am surrounded in an almost solid wall of baitfish - it's like a giddy awe. There are thousands of tiny fish making up these curtains, but they seem to shimmy and sway as one mind. It can make you dizzy and always makes you laugh. It can also make you a little paranoid as you just know a school of the big predator fish are going to swoop past you on all sides, with no warning, at a hundred miles an hour, scattering the little fish in a million different directions! This diver was more sedate coming through the thick cloud but the baitfish still exploded outwards like shards of glass.
