This was a nice postdive manta session. A dense patch of plankton outside of Hanifaru Bay attracted about 20 -30 mantas. Luckily I had a few bar left in my tank ;-)

I took this image with a Canon Powershot whilst freediving in the Maldives in February 2018. The waters surrounding this small island now host a huge population of stingrays and moray eels, because a tuna factory on the island discards tuna waste.

Watching this school of neon fusiliers being hunted by bluefin jack and dogtooth tunas was like watching NatGeo on TV, just better. To catch the movement I used a long shutter speed of 1/10th sec
