The swirling shoal wall print

Snorkelling off Formentera, one of the Balearic islands in the Mediterranean, camera at the ready, Manu became absorbed by the light filtering down from above.


This swirl of species, from pilchards to mackerel, come in close to shore in autumn to shelter from bigger predatory fish, including their own species. ‘It was magic,’ says Manu. ‘They moved as if they were one, swirling in perfect synchrony.’
