A school of mobulas split in half and went around us. The water was very green that day so I tried to get an image of their silhouettes with the sun.

This divemaster frees a 35ft whale shark from a thick fishing line. He had to keep up in strong current at 100ft. and peel the line from the skin after cutting the line in half.
