Little Green Jacks

Green jacks sometimes follow you when you are swimming or paddling. It’s fun swimming with them and observing their behavior. Today my head was out of the water and could see through the glassy clear, calm water a huge shiny thing coming at me. Suddenly I had, “flight for flight;” an instinctual scare. But when I plunged my head into the water, I broke out laughing. I saw this great school of small jacks colliding with my path, going crazy feeding, diving, darting. Here is a clip of them! I see this fun school of small Green Jacks each day on a routine snorkel swim. Today they really surprised me! This species of fish is one of the many special fish in Ventana Bay. I just love them!
