Brian Skerry Risked Life and Limb to Photograph Mystical Beasts

National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry's whale photography is absolutely breathtaking.

Armed with an adventurous spirit, Skerry braved the perilous waters of the sea to bring us some of nature's finest wonders. However beautiful and majestic the photos are, there is an underlying element of terror. I mean, picture yourself submerged underwater -- trapped, essentially -- in the company of a colossal beast, one who wouldn't think twice about swallowing you whole. And no one could hear you scream. Skerry's bravery, along with his excellent composition skills, make him the perfect photographer to capture wildlife. No wonder he's been commissioned by National Geographic.

Those who are intrigued by these hair-raising images will also enjoy Skerry's similar series of sharks. Warning: not for the faint of heart.
