Thirty to one. those are the odds of snapping the shutter at just the right time to get a great big-game photo, says Scott Kerrigan, who captured the action of this leaping blue marlin off Venezuela. "We were trolling in the same area as the Hatteras that caught the fish and just kept motoring along with it, waiting for the right time," he says. "When the fish jumped and I got the photo, my trip was made right there. I did cartwheels all the way back to the airport."
