Baby Manatee in the Rain | Photograph by Szilárd Jankó ( @szjanko ) . "Thousands of rain drops on the surface, the cutest little baby manatee swimming just below," writes #YourShotPhotographer Szilárd Jankó. This photo was selected for the August 9, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series. — “Manatees are some of the sweetest creatures (in my opinion ) and their gentle, slow nature is perfectly captured here in the way the mother manatee shields her calf, keeping it safe. I love the mirroring textures between the rain on the water and the sea floor.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas ( @kemcnicholas )
