BBC reveals photos of spectacular beauty of large marine predators

The BBC website shows photos of spectacular beauty, with marine fauna and flora, especially its major predators, taken by the U.S. professional photographer Brian Skerry.

The U.S. risks his life swimming alongside some of the most dangerous sea creatures such as giant whales, manta rays with venomous sauries and sharks known as “human eaters.”

At 50 years old, he claims to be “an ocean explorer” and always felt drawn to the marine environment since a teenager.

His first underwater camera was purchased at age of 15. “The underwater photography is very challenging because you cannot use telescopic lens, needing to get very close to its objects; the light is tricky, since the environment is dark; and you are working in with the unknown”, he explains.

Skerry said he believed that the animals he photographed have “curiosity” about it. “The animal lets you get very close to him, tolerating you. I hope I do not give an intimidating impression.”

He spends about three months in one place, exploring and photographing various marine species. The photographer says he feels a “healthy fear” of research on animals and their behavior before the dives.
