MILLIONS OF SARDINES CREATE A TORNADO WAVE
THIS incredible shimmer of silver fish mirrors the image of that of an underwater tornado. Together in perfect sync, these sardines storm through the ocean at great speed. The remarkable photographs were taken by underwater photographer Henry Jager, and show how the sardines cause a tornado of waves as they circle Pescador Island, in the Philippines. Henry, 43, said: 'This sardine formation is an underwater encounter like we what would imagine a topside tornado to create. 'The school appears with an incredible speed of around 25mph, and circle around the waves, changing shape and directions several times. 'Some shapes you can see in the pictures, but when you use your imagination you start to recognise all types of things, such as a sea lion or an elephant, but mainly abstract shapes.
