Surprise!!  While sitting patiently watching a big Great White playing with some sea weed, this 4+m male GW scared the hell out of me as he snuck by for an ultra close pass. Evidently I don't taste good.

Meet Bruce, the smiling 5m male great white.  Bruce was one of 5 whites that circled us during the dive, making for a nerve racking ascent. Taken at 24m at the Neptune Islands, South Australia using a Nikon D700 16mm & 1.4x converter.

Watching Great Whites in their natural environment (in this case down at 26 metres) is an incredible site.  On this dive we had 5 GW's encircle us including this 4.5m male.  Certainly made getting back to the surface interesting.
