Photographer's Note

This photograph was taken at Puri sea beach, a very popular tourist destination of Orissa, India. Fishing is one of the main sources of livelihood for the common people of Puri as well as Orissa. They usually set out for fishing with their little boats at very early hour of morning and come back with their catches after 2-3 hours to sell them in local markets. Those two fisher men with two hammerhead sharks in their hands, were more than happy as they could earn little extra money by selling them to the tourist among whom these sharks were very popular. But this uncontrolled catching of this species is making them extinct from this part of the world which bothers these fisher men very little.
