A perfect picture highlighting the benign nature of sharks. The diver wasn't even aware that he wasn't the center of attraction in the shot, until the shark swam in between us.

Shy sharks glow green under fluorescent photography lighting. It was really great to watch these green sharks swimming around on the sandy bottom.
