Dolphin Superpod

Off the coast of Costa Rica, Your Shot photographer Shelton DuPreez was surrounded by a superpod of dolphins. "We were equipped with an electric underwater propeller system, that allowed us to mimick their effortless playful behaviour and they LOVED IT!" he remembers. "In crystal clear waters we were surrounded by no less then a couple hundred at any given time." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
