Whale Sharks Gather

Just look at those awesome creatures. An aerial view of a massive gathering of whale sharks in the middle of the Sea of Cortez. Look at the boat for scale.

The largest fish in the ocean generally eats the smallest organisms. There's some beautiful symmetry, or even a message in all of that (but don't ask me to describe it).

Plus, how great would it be to be swimming with those docile giants? Actually, it might be as the ocean often is, simultaneously magnificent and frightening.

I just learned about these awesome creatures thanks to an article in the most recent issue of the Smithsonian. You can read about it here:
