Photo of the Day

June 9, 2017

In Your Face

Your Shot photographer Shane Gross wanted to get up close and personal with Caribbean reef sharks. He knew the sharks shy away from people, so he got inventive. "I placed my camera on a rock where I know they frequent," he says, "and used a remote trigger to click away as they came in and bumped my camera around." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
