Big Fish
The ocean sunfish is the largest teleost fish in the world. I've been in the water with many molas, and this one was one of the biggest toads I'd ever seen, 10' at least from fin tip to fin tip probably 8' long. My buddy Mike is swimming alongside it to lend a sense of scale. We were 30 miles or so offshore of San Diego in my boat for this one, in clean blue summer water.
Thank you for your comments! This photo went popular last night and by the time I check G+ this morning the comments had maxed out at 500 so I cannot add any of my own. I appreciate all the interest in this image. Cheers!
