13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sardine Tornado

This is not a painting, but is a photograph showing a school of Sardines swimming towards food. Taken with slow shutter-speed, it accentuates the desperation and determination of each individual Sardine to get their stomachs filled. The chaos is simply beautiful.
