Sunday Night Fish n Pics

Welcome to a new weekly feature - Sunday Night Fish n Pics. I'm trialling the name - right now, I kinda like it, but time will tell if it evolves to something else. What do you think of it? I'm open to suggestions!

Each week I'm going to pop up one or more of my underwater images for your viewing pleasure. I might include a little note about the creature in the picture or about the dive. Or maybe I'll just leave the picture on its own. Who knows what I'll do, it'll be a surprise for us all!

Enough chatter, let's get to the photo. This small white tip reef shark was fascinating to watch and I stayed with her for a good fifteen minutes. She was circling a small patch of reef, beating up the coral & rankin cods and generally staking out some territory by pushing all the other fish around. Several times she came in too close to me to even focus on her. It was a unique encounter that put a smile on my face for days!

Especially like the second shot, where she seems to be (was) looking right at you. A bit unsettling, but great image.
