Big fish - little fish. It's always so fascinating to see the community of fish that whale sharks attract. This was an unusual sighting of a small shoal of fish that stayed close to the tail in full motion.
It's not that often that you see more than one whale shark in close proximity in Honda Bay, Palawan, and when you do you have to react very quickly to get them in the same frame. I was pleased to get two aspects of whale sharks in this photo.
This was one of my most amazing whale shark experiences with a shoal of red fish hanging around our boat for more than hour trying to evade this whale shark, but it eventually had its fill.
Whale sharks with their striking markings in the right lighting are ideal for b&w images.
There was a large shoal of small red fish evading a whale shark by hiding beneath our boat in Honda Bay, Palawan. Sometimes they gathered around us to seek protection. When they did break free from the boat they followed the whale shark.
I've been trying to get some good over/under photos of the whale sharks in Honda Bay, Palawan for a long time, and have managed quite a few in this last year. I've been going on this boat since the first trip nearly ten years ago.
Whale shark being followed by a shoal of red fish avoiding being eaten. A large shoal of these fish were sheltering beneath our boat to escape from the whale shark. Honda Bay, Palawan.
