It looks like an attack, but it wasn´t! They came very close, looking at me and my camera. A very exciting dive to get some images of the Caribbean Reef Sharks (Carcharhinus perezi).

    Great capture. Better you than me in the water. I enjoy snorkelling for the smaller fish and their amazing world underwater, but not with sharks!

  • Thank you Christina. Snorkeling with sharks is no good idea. Diving is no problem.
