PIC BY OCTAVIO ABURTO / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED The school of fish gather in front of diver David Castro with his camera) - Smile - its the school photo! This is the hilarious moment a marine photographer managed to capture hundreds of wide-eyed fish apparently posing for a picture. Californian photographer and conservationist Octavio Aburto had spent years photographing the school in Cabo Pulmo National Park, Mexico - and had been trying to capture this exact shot for three years.
Photographer | Octavio Aburto (National Geographic ) Place : Cabo Pulmo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. (reminds me of a scene in Finding Nemo)
Photo of the Day: David and Goliath Caption provided by photographer Octavio Aburto: Together with my friend David Castro, we were diving with a large group of Bigeye travellies at Cabo Pulmo National Park, Mexico. Thousands of fish forming a ball during the reproduction courtship. In the afternoon, these fish congregate to form a large spawning aggregation around the reefs of the National Park. Location: Cabo Pulmo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. This image was submitted to a National Geographic photo contest, you can view and “like” this photo by clicking HERE.

Amazing underwater photography in Mexico
Photographer and marine biologist Octavio Aburto snapped the images of the "fish tornado". Images of an underwater fish "tornado" were captured at Cabo Pulmo National Park in Mexico. Cabo Pulmo is a large marine reserve in Mexico's Sea of Cortez, which is located north of Cabo San Lucas on Baja California's tip. Amazing!

On November 12, 2012, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this nighttime view of southern Asia. The image is based on data collected by the VIIRS “day-night band,” which detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near-infrared. The image has been brightened to make the city lights easier to distinguish. (NASA)
Proposed bridge between Hong Kong and mainland China.

Switching from a Right-Lane Country to a Left-Lane One. The proposed “Pearl Necklace” Bridge would unite Hong Kong with Mainland China
A new connection between Hong Kong and China is due for completion by 2016. The bridge between the countries will transfer driving from the left side of the road to the right
Design by a Dutch architectural firm between Hong Kong and mainland China. In the former British colony of Hong Kong, people drive on the left hand side of the road, as in the UK and Australia. In mainland China, People drive on the right hand side of the road as in the USA.
People in Hong Kong drive on the left side of the road, but people in mainland China drive on the right side of the road. How do you switch them when they cross the Pearl River? Dutch design firm NL Architects proposes this figure-eight design that splits the lanes and reroutes both to the correct side of the road for each direction.~ That's really clever!

sun-shower: The eye-catching swimming pool in Mumbai, India, has been built to raise awareness about the threat of sea level rises as a result of global warming. It was constructed by attaching a giant aerial photograph of the New York City skyline to the floor of the pool. The idea was conceived by advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather, who were commissioned by banking giant HSBC to promote its £50million project tackling climate change.

This looks like a place where intergalactic smugglers go to hide from Boba Fett.Clearly someone just set a bucket of dry ice near a bunch of Puzz-3Ds and took a picture.However,this CGI-esque photo is actually city skyline of Dubai (which contains 22 skyscrapers that exceed 75 floors) jutting up through some fog.We imagine that the view you're seeing here can really revolutionize weather forecasting,seeing as how you can measure the altitude of cloud cover simply by leaning out the window.
