20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Diver and Dragon

Bohar Snappers aggregate in massive schools for mating every summer in Ras Mohammed National Park in the Egyptian Red Sea. As this school grew and moved around, at one moment in time, they appeared to take the shape of a dragon, opening its mouth and facing the diver photographer. Whether the dragon smiled or frowned to the human, we will never know.
