20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

The animal in focus is a critically endangered smalltooth sawfish. While diving a remote part of The Bahamas, this beautiful ray swam past our boat. I hopped in and spent the best 15 minutes of my life swimming next to this ancient animal.
