Traffic Patterns
I can't help but wonder how the sand tiger sharks figure out which direction they're going to go, or which group they're going to hang out with.

Happy Hour fun, this image had one friend holding a boom with slave flash and video lights up high, one holding an iPad to make the capture through a Camranger, and one to hold the 15 ft. pole that pushes the boat.. my wife thinks I have a problem..
