Amazing creatures of the seas and oceans

1. Spotted dolphins . Bahamas. The comment of the photographer: “Night of spotted dolphins swim from the shores of the Small Bahamian banks in the deep water of the Gulf stream in search of food. One night the ship’s captain, Jim Abernethy, she noticed a small group of dolphins swimming near the bow of the ship. We silenced the engine, turned on the lights and jumped into the water. Using manual focus mode, and the flash, I was able to make this unusual frame”. (Andrew Sallmon / Nature’s Best Photography)

3. Hammerhead shark, Cocos island, Costa Rica. The comment of the photographer: “This shark slowly drifted along the reef, known as Alcione.

4. Polar bears, Cape Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. Photographer’s comment: “In late November, the polar bears were on the West side of Hudson Bay.

5. The whale, gulls, and sanderlings, the marine reserve of Massachusetts. The comment of the photographer: “Every season of my wife and Anna go on a journey on a ship to go whale watching. In late spring there is a great opportunity to see humpback whales feeding. Usually a flock of seagulls warns that Keith’s going back to the surface, bringing with them a flock of gerbils. This whale uses a lower jaw to pull the fish and the gull arrow rushing down to grab a piece of the pie, sometimes flying in millimeters from the mouth of the whale.” (Bryce Flynn / Nature’s Best Photography)
