While the CGI in Finding Nemo was incredibly realistic, some things are just not as epic until they’re seen in real life. One of those natural phenomena is this ridiculously synchronized school of fish captured by American photographer Octavio Aburto. While diving off the coast of Mexico with his friend David Castro, he stumbled upon a fish-nado of awe-inspiring proportion. Aburto, a marine biologist, underwater photographer, and lifelong sea adventurer, had never seen anything like it. Phallic inferences are not inappropriate here—what Aburto and Castro stumbled upon was thousands of fish in the throes of passionate lovemaking.
