Food Fight

To capture this picture of gannets fighting over fish, Your Shot photographer Sally Hinton placed her camera in an underwater housing and then lowered it over the side of her boat. She watched the birds and when they dove in to the water, she snapped the picture, without seeing what the final result might look like. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
