The Bodyguard

In the waters off of the Philippines, a small fish takes shelter in the tentacles of a jellyfish. "However, the small fish you see in this image isn't immune to the stings either," says Your Shot photographer Henley Spiers. "And so whilst using the jelly for protection, it must be constantly alert and make sure it swims in just the right position!" This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
