UPY Behaviour - Third
A striped marlin in the middle of hunting a bait-ball in Mexico. The captured scene is an action shot of a striped marlin mid-hunt.
I travelled to Puerto San Carlos with the plan to photograph marlins, mobulas, and whales. The idea behind the photo was to try and recreate the sense of thrill when sharing the ocean with a predator who is in the middle of catching its prey. The photograph was quite difficult to catch considering the constant movement of the bait ball and the school of marlins, requiring constant adjustment mid-water. Being able to share the ocean with the marlins during this moment was breathtaking and memorable.
Judge's comment: A perfectly timed, peak of the action image made this an obvious contender. - Peter Rowlands
