School’s in session in Palau

IN most places, seeing a school of barracuda is rare, but scuba enthusiast Morgan Ashton spotted them nearly every time he dove off Palau, a nation of islands in the Pacific that he visited in May. He had to drift slowly toward the fish so he wouldn’t spook them, and he took the picture with a MotorMarine II, an underwater camera, and a strobe. “I like that you can see the spiral of the school,” said Ashton, a business analyst in San Francisco.
