A Northern Giant Petrel curious about its reflection in my dome dwarfs the onlooking tour boat. This funny bird followed me in the water for 20 minutes and spent most of the time right in front of my camera. An unforgettable encounter!

I took this image with a Canon Powershot whilst freediving in the Maldives in February 2018. The waters surrounding this small island now host a huge population of stingrays and moray eels, because a tuna factory on the island discards tuna waste.
