Interesting Photo of the Day: A Cloud of Tadpoles

In British Colombia, Canada, thousands of tiny tadpoles swim beneath the surface of a lily pad covered lake. Capturing this type of incredible and highly unusual scene is the norm for New Zealand underwater photographer Eiko Jones:

Since picking up his first DSLR at the age of 14, Jones has been photographing the natural world—from the wild birds of New Zealand to bold coastal landscapes of Alaska. But it was after an excursion spent diving with sharks that Jones discovered his passion for underwater photography. His surreal and dramatic images encapsulate the mysterious beauty found in nature, both inside and out of water.

The image titled “Cloud of Tadpoles” is part of Jones’s collection, “Tadpoles, Swamps, Lakes, Ponds,” and was published in an issue of National Geographic.
