Some photos are best taken with the camera at the end of a long stick, like this one taken of a bronze whaler shark inhaling a fishy snack.
Western Australian tourist Brianna Jones took the photo near Tauranga while on-board a Fat Boy Charters' boat about three weeks ago.
Brianna was fishing with her family.
Skipper Russ Hawkins says Brianna had a GoPro camera on the end of a stick when she took the photo from just under the surface of the water.
“To me it's a very iconic photo, a very good shot of action taken just under the surface,” says Russ.
“We don't even try to catch them. We would rather not touch them at all. It just happened to be gathering round the boat while I was cleaning some fish.”
