16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I had this shot in mind for a long time but its not often you get to swim under a 45 tonne Whale as she surfaces to breath. This year i was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time in the water with these magnificent animals. When we found this very relaxed mum and calf in shallow water i knew i had a chance to get the shot. I dived down under, holding my breath, waiting for that special moment. As the baby swims back under mum i knew i had the shot.
