Your Shot member Denis Nezhentsev captured this underwater scene, a recent Daily Dozen selection, during a dive safari near Wolf Island in the Galápagos. “The main purpose of the shoot was hammerhead sharks and stingrays,” he says. “I first went into the big cloud of small fish, and then there was a pack of hammerhead sharks circling me. I could only hope they were satiated and took the shot.”
