"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!!
