brilliant capture ~ such an amazing design ~ fab pov! xx
Thank you Linda. Nature is the best designer.
Thank you John.
wow, what a wonderful specimen and a terrific capture!
Thank you very much Katie.
Yes, I see what you mean, Norbert. I photographed a carpet shark from the same angle (Australian wobbygong) which was caught in a lobster trap. The fisherman held it to the camera for me before tossing it back into the sea. We normally see those critters from above so it’s amazing to see them eye to eye. The fisherman warned me about getting too close because if they bite, they don’t let go!
I never saw this species aggressive and I saw them many times. I think it’s normal that animals try to defend themselves if it’s necessary. Wouldt you not do the same? Thank you Gary.
Wow,awesome eye contact
Thank you Hans.
He is gorgeous! Amazing angle and close up!
I alway try to find something different. Thank you.
Fantastic portrait Norbert! What a character.
Thank you very much David. You are right ;-)
Yes, I am completely mesmerized & will follow him anywhere…. Another fine shot, Norbert.
Thank you very much, and best regards from the Maldives, Indian Ocean.
