UPY  Up and coming - Highly Commended
'I'm the fastest!'
Giacomo Rossi

During the annual Mexican sardine run, the main attraction is the striped marlin. But the marlin and sailfish are not the only predators for the sardines. The super agile and fast sealion is no doubt a serious competitor for them. Sometimes you can even see the sealion chase the marlin in order to get the best position for the hunt. It's incredible see how the sealion can twist , spin and accelerate. His super speed doesn't give many chances for the sardines to survive. In the Ocean only the fastest will survive.

Judge's comment: Knowing when to press the shutter is hard to teach and learn. Sometimes it’s easier to learn by example and this is a good example. - Peter Rowlands
