Golden Sweepers, Pulau Tulang, Buyat Bay, North Sulawesi, Indonesia

These beautiful pink and yellow shimmering fish (Parapriacanthus ransonneti) live in large groups among corals and in caves where they feed on zooplankton at night.

“Golden sweepers form schools in reef crevices and caves and among coral heads. The technique I employed to make this image was a long exposure and rear curtain synchronization combined with a circular rotation of the camera during the shot. Buyat Bay, a threatened area, is home to one of the highest numbers of coral and fish species in the world.” -- Nature's Best Photographer, Jeff Yonover
