Your Shot Series: Breaking Barriers

March is Women’s History Month and to honor the women in our community and around the globe, Your Shot Associate Photo Editor, Kristen McNicholas, will be curating one image a day from the Your Shot community that celebrates women. Each day in March the photographs will be shared on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.

Your Shot Photographer Lesley Rochat beautifully displays the raw power beneath the surface of water through her use of composition and playing an excellent waiting game to perfectly time the shark swimming through the frame.

“The images I chose to feature this month celebrate female-identifying Your Shot photographers telling a visual story of empowerment, the freedom and flexibility of womanhood, photographers and their images #BreakingBarriers whether it’s identifying women’s issues in their images or a beautiful landscape or underwater image.” – Your Shot Associate Photo Editor, Kristen McNicholas

Milky Crab Spider (Zygometis xanthogaster)
Found in Central Victoria, I only noticed them at first when I saw a fly ‘suspended’ on the outside of one of the petals (with a Crab Spider hanging on the other end)!
