Finalist Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Magnus Lundgren Philippines
A beautiful juvenile scalloped ribbonfish. "This image was captured in open water while earthquakes were rolling like thunder underwater," says photographer Magnus Lundgren. "As an adult this fish looks like another species, much bigger, shiny silver, with red markings. Sometimes ribbonfish are called “earthquake fish” because they have appeared as adults on the ocean's surface following major earthquake events."
