16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Whale Shark Photobomb (Darwin Island, Galapagos)
When you have an animal as large as a whale shark, they can move quickly and change direction even faster. I didn’t realize I would be so close to this shark until she turned, and suddenly she was right next to me. I kept swimming alongside her, and was completely mesmerized.
