The glassy calm waters of the Solomon Islands provided the perfect opportunity to practice my flying fish photography skills. Schools of flying fish scattered out of the path of our boat's oncoming bow, bursting out of the water and using their wing-like pectoral fins to glide surprisingly long distances. By flapping their tails they can create even more momentum, enabling them to string together multiple glides to ultimately cover distances of as much as 1300 feet! At night, sometimes we would hear the thump as one flew too high and landed on the deck. Photographing them was always a challenge. I would sit on the bow scanning the water for the next eruption - but who knew when or where it would happen! They burst suddenly out of the ocean, fly fast and low, and plunge back into the water. It takes luck to have the camera lens pointed roughly in the right direction at the right moment. I like this particular shot because of the abstract quality of the ocean surface, the track in the water left by the tail, and the mirrored reflection of the fish. All that, and I managed to keep it in focus!
