Daisy Gilardini waited 117 hours for these shots

Sometimes the wait is definitely worth it. Even when that wait is 117 hours i sub-zero conditions.
Daisy Gilardini waited all that time to catch a glimpse of polar bear cubs leaving their maternity den with their mother for the first time to hunt seals.

When Photographing A Sperm Whale Goes Wrong

Keri Wilk is no stranger to underwater photography. He started diving when he was 8 and he hasn't left the water since.
In March 2014 he was diving with a group off the coast of Dominica.
As luck would have it a sperm whale approached them and the photo session began.
Unfortunately the model in question really needed to go to the bathroom and as you can see by the photos below and in this link it all became a bit cloudy for Kerri at that point.

Check out Keri Wilk's website and 500px profile for some amazing underwater photos.
