16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fish Eats Fish

A juvenile grouper is fighting for its life as a lizard fish tries ingest it. After this shot, the juvenile grouper managed to break free from the lizard fish's jaw. It was alive, but could barely swim. It took two breaths before it was eaten by a prowling snapper nearby.
