Fish tornado phenomenon photographed by Octavio Aburto

Awesome photo! Whether it is the Aurora Borealis with beach dinoflagellates photo I'd put up a few days ago, or this undersea fish tornado, the earth and the universe constantly amaze me. Our Creator is to be praised, for His intellect, creativity, and beauty. That He created man to have communion with Him and to be the worker of His garden (Genesis 2:15) is such a gift.

EarthSky.org reports, "Photographer and marine biologist Octavio Aburto captured this amazing photo of the at Cabo Pulmo National Park in Mexico, in the course of studying the courtship behavior of a species of Jack fish. He titled it “David and Goliath.”


The photo has left many in disbelief, though the sheer magnitude of its wonder. So Octavio Aburto has released the video of the jackfish courtship behavior to satisfy the curious and the skeptical.



The photographer hopes that your wonder at seeing "Goliath" will spark you to think more about the environment, and that is all well and good. I hope it will spark you to think more about the Creator, and His magnificent hand which created ALL that exists. And He did it in 6 days. Praise His mighty name!

"Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable." (Psalms 145:3)
