Getting Acquainted

A sea lion plays with the bubbles coming from Your Shot photographer Camallonga Emmanuelle's oxygen tank. Emmanuelle was photographing the animals while diving near Los Islotes, an island off of Baja California. Sea lions' whiskers help them not only navigate in dark waters, but also find food nearby. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
