A Swarm of Sharks

Your Shot photographer Kimberly Jeffries was scuba diving in the Galápagos Islands when dozens of scalloped hammerhead sharks began swimming above her. "Without the use of video lights or strobes it was challenging to shoot straight up," she recalls, "but we didn't want to disturb the sharks with flashes. It's beautiful to witness nature in its untouched and wild form like this." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
