Une rencontre incroyable à NOSY BE

Up close to a spotty dotty Seastar
Une prise de vue non préparée, sans mise en scène, simplement sur l'instant
It was towards the end of a dive, when this tiger shark emerged from the blue and swam straight through our group totally unphased. For me, this depicts ocean connectivity through immersing in a deep blue bond. Taken in Fuvahmulah, Maldives.

"Angry"
Just a cool image of an oceanic black tip shark.
The tiger and the reef fish look like they are about to square off. I love marine predators and my wife and I were able to see this sigh and be lucky enough to capture this image.

Shot on Olympus EPL-10 with Backscatter MF2
This was my best encounter with a whale and his calf. I had chance to have in front of me 2 dolphins with the whales! Special and unique moment to me, will remember it for long.
Image was taken in Baa Atoll, Maldives at around 20m on a cloudy day.

Galeocerdo cuvier (Tiger shark) in Fuvahmulah watched by divers. The dive site is named accordingly : "Tiger Zoo". Luckily without cages. Let's hope it can remain that way. Only natural light. - Els
