While on an expedition at Todos Santos in south Baja California, Mexico, Your Shot member Alejandro Prieto was searching for big predators—such as marlins, sharks, or tuna—feeding on sardine bait balls, but instead he found this Hawaiian petrel feeding on crustaceans. “Luckily I was able to capture the moment it submerged its head to feed on the tiny food source,” Prieto writes.

“I was traveling through South Dakota and decided to visit Custer State Park during their annual buffalo roundup,” writes Wes Eisenhauer, who submitted this photo to the Traveler Photo Contest, happening now. “As I approached the area where the buffalo are kept and counted, most of the herd scattered at my presence. This buffalo stayed and had a few more sips of water while I snapped a few pictures … We both stood quietly for just a moment before she turned and walked away.” PHOTOGRAPH BY WES EISENHAUER
After a shore excursion we were cruising towards the Equator for a toast to crossing it.  I was relaxing on deck when I noticed the evening light painting this rock formation.  Without my 35mm camera with me I took this picture with an iPhone!  I didn't want to miss this opportunity.
