Alex Mustard - Tarpon Feast


A group of tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) hunt silversides (Atherinidae) inside a coral cavern. I travelled to the Cayman Islands in summer hoping to see schools of silversides gathering in the caverns within the coral reef. However the silverside numbers were lower than normal, but this acted to concentrate the predators (the tarpon) allowing me to get many of them in one frame.

Location: George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, British West Indies. Caribbean Sea.
