Photographers David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes who together specialize in underwater photography, were recently on assignment for National Geographic in Cuba when they captured this amazing school of blue silversides. The thousands of finger-sized fish are swimming through mangroves (small trees that are able to grow in salt water) but the photographer’s ingenious perspective makes them appear to swim through the air. The image was one of several selected for National Geographic’s Best Photos of 2016.
