14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A nurse shark and magnificent frigatebirds feed along the shoreline at dusk.

This photo was captured at dusk, while our tour guides prepared our day's fish catch on a chopping block along the shore. The birds and sharks know this is the best time to come along the shore to catch an easy meal of fish scraps.
