"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."

This leads to question of the morning for me. Facebook is enhancing brand page admin. tools. Will they or should they begin charging for upgraded editorial and insight abilities with brand pages?
