15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Basking shark

The second largest shark in the world. It grows up to nine meters. They eat only plankton. I got close to the shark and put the camera in front of his mouth. The shark turns around and the wave of this maneuver dropped me a few meters away. Hebrides, Scotland
