I wanted to capture the power and beauty of this grey reef shark. I think this comes best across when they are doing an abrupt turn away from a head on encounter.

"My BEST side!!" This gorgeous female sand tiger shark came within a few feet of me then instantly veered off to her right; I think she was making sure I captured her "best" side!

"Out of the pack" - I really had this image or something very similar to it in my mind during this particular dive with the sand tiger sharks, when I turned my head to see it in actuality!! Lucky me!!

This is a lovely female sand tiger shark inside the biggest bait ball I've ever seen!! The ball was so thick that it was like night inside!! I came face to face with one of these beauties, so was lucky enough to capture this image.

Jupiter and West Palm Beach offer plenty of great diving .... The fresh flow of the Gulf Stream is home to Silkie, Dusky and Sandbar sharks in July.
