Fiji's Reefs Zoom In 2

. . . Now You Don't
Photograph by Tim Laman

Scores of orange basslets vanished into this reef coral the instant a pair of hungry bluefin trevally came screaming overhead in close formation on the hunt for prey. "This pair of shots illustrates the importance of the reef as a shelter for small fish," says photographer Tim Laman, who took these two photographs just seconds apart.
