‘Potbelly Pig’

In the Bahamas, Aliah Eichelberger discovered pot-bellied pigs can swim. The Santa Barbara High School junior jumped in with them and took this photo, which got the second-highest number of votes from the audience in National Geographic‘s high school photo contest. Of 2,300 entrants, 24 made the final cut. “I think the composition of the photo with the hand, the pig, and the tourists in the background is very interesting,” Eichelberger wrote, telling us that she found it pretty humorous, too.
