Day 5 - Ocean Sunfish

Day 5 - Ocean Sunfish

Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola), Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary
Day 5 of the ‪#‎challengeonnaturephotography‬. I photographed this Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola) while on a pelagic birding trip to the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary off the coast of California. These fish can grow as large as 5000 pounds and up to 10 feet in length and are often seen basking in the sun on their side near the surface like the individual in this image.
