Usually sandbar sharks are extremely elusive as they are shy, however, on this particular dive, the sandbars were coming in HOT! This female came right up on my dome along with her entourage.

While at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas, we generally keep all our attention on the tiger, hammerhead and bull sharks. This poor grouper kept coming up as if to say "I need some love too!!"
