Flying Fish

Its really tough to photograph flying fish. The cameras Auto focus fails, because of the poor contrast. I had to Use manual Focus, pre focus it, and pan the camera to prevent blurring of fish due to movement. They flyout of water and within a few seconds they are gone.So need to be rally quick in framing the image.


  1. Where did you take your pictures? I've recently been to Yucatan and Cozumel in Mexico, and saw many of those while riding on the ferry between the island and the mainland. We visited Chichen Itza and learned that the Mayans venerated a 'feathered serpent'. The main temple is even built in a determined angle so that, on the spring equinox, the shadows of the pyramid incide over the steps and create the perfect image of a serpenting creature! Of course, fascinated as I was with the flying fish, I couldn't help but think that the feathered serpent might well be an allusion to the fish.

  2. Hi Erica, I clicked this one somewhere in the South China sea, In fact Flying Fishes are pretty common in tropical water all around the world, and it calm seas it does look like the trail of a serpent, so very much possible the your assumptions can be a Fact.
    Thank you
