PHOTOS: Marine biologist captures incredibly rare footage of hundreds of hammerhead sharks

A marine biologist had the "most amazing day" when he captured rare footage of hundreds of the world’s most sensitive sharks. Dr. Simon Pierce, 39, filmed the herd of hammerheads in the Galapagos National Park, with a remote camera so he did not disturb the shy creatures. The photos and videos were taken at one of the world's most remote scuba diving locations, Darwin Island in the far north of the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador. Simon, from New Plymouth in New Zealand, said: “Seeing the hammerheads was one of the most amazing days of my life. “I became a marine biologist to have the opportunity to see some amazing places and animals as a part of my work, and photography is a great way to share them with people.” (Caters News)
