Whale of a Time
Photograph by David Robinson, National Geographic Your Shot
A whale shark—the biggest fish in the sea—swims
along, “extremely curious” about his observers. Your Shot photographer
David Robinson, who researches whale shark ecology, captured this image
in Qatar on a day with “great visibility” in an area with waters that
are usually full of plankton.
Robinson’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
