Siclefin Lemon Shark on Patrol!! She's obviously just eaten as there is a piece of flesh hanging out from her mouth.  Big girl at over 2m.  She certainly wasn't camera shy circling around me while i was trying to photograph some bull sharks.

Silvertip sharks of Fiji / Fiji is home to a diverse shark population. We were lucky to observe nine species during one day of diving. Pictured here are the nimble and quick silvertip sharks, so named for the silver edges on their fin tips.
