This Whale Shark kept her eye on me as she was curving by with a photographer trying to keep up. It was a great moment watching her eye swivel and view me with a knowing look

'Daniel and (gentle) Goliath'
Those who know me well, know my favourite colour is grey.
I'm a big lover of the dapple grey horses for their patterned coats.
I now have a new favourite pattern!
