Bonito eggs happily don't show up as much as some plankton- you can see them streaked because of the panning of the camera- even at 160th second shutter. I applied a soft vignette in white and desaturated.

Silhouette,. they turn when you dive down to them, I don't remember that last year because there were so many.

by Steven Miller
holding still for me- I think they are gulping eggs in a raft, as opposed to swimming through clouds then turning to pass back through again.
