Jumping Marlin
Fig. 48: One of the jumping Marlins regularly seen from the boat. Unfortunately I didn't have my big telephoto lens with me and if someone jumped close enough to the boat they only did it once or I didn't have the camera with me. Marlins usually jump up several times during the hunt and smack the side of their body on the water surface. — South Ari Atoll, Maldives Nikon D200; Δt=1/1000 s; f=120 mm; f/9.0; ISO 400; 23 November 2007 05:54:00
