This baby was not camera shy at all! Here it is literally in front of my camera.
Here's the Whale Shark swimming underneath me.
This picture shows the Shark moving away from us again. It was Richard's first Whale Shark and he got some good shots in. he was pretty happy about this dive!
This picture shows the Whale Shark swimming away with Richard's camera at the side.
When we were back on the boat, the Shark surfaced and bumped almost into some students that still were in the water.
As the second dive of the day we completed a AWARE Fish ID dive, which happens to be the PADI Specialty of the month for this August! During this dive we both shot some very good pix again, but the Whale Shark was the talk of the day!
