Photo Friday: Swift

Pelagic Ctenophore at night Ned DeLoach BlennyWatcher.comThis week’s Photo Friday challenge is “Swift”, as in what one must be in order to capture a jelly plankton drifter, at night, in a current. Ned took this shot on an open water night drift dive through Ambon Harbor, Indonesia. Although he was drifting with the current, most of the animals were swimming and moving much faster than he could. He shoots with manual focus, which adds to the difficulty.
