Feeding frenzly, the mantas of the Hanifaru lagoon Baa atoll, for a unique show . Pictures take during snorkelling witu housing Seacam , photocamera Nikon D800E , lens 17/35mm Nikon

Nurse sharks at sunset, they approach the reef in search of some waste fish thrown by fishermen. This is the right time to approach them by taking some special photographs
