"Bubble net feeding is a unique technique employed by humpback whales, in which a group of whales swim in a shrinking circle blowing bubbles below a school of fish," says Your Shot photographer Vadim Balakin, who got this aerial shot off the coast of Antarctica. "This shrinking column of bubbles surrounds the school of fish forcing them upward." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
