    What a beautiful catch of a beautiful animal, Norbert. He looks as if he’s made from some precious metallic element! Have you seen the photo of the Ocean Sunfish (Mola Mola) that is currently making the rounds on various websites? Have you ever photographed one of those unique creatures? Happy New Year! ~ Sheila

  • Thank you very much for your comment. Here you will see my sunfish:

    Great capture… really looks like they are built for speed!

  • Thank you John. This species is one of the smaller sharks and not dangerous.

    That silvery look reminds me of a sardine hehe. From this angle, the shark looks long and narrow, which is unusual. Yesterday, near where I live on the East Coast of NSW Australia, a surfer was bitten on the leg by a bull shark and also lost two fingers. He’s in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Does the ever present threat of danger worry you, Norbert?
